Can we help you?
It is common to need support beyond what family and friends can offer at some point in a college career. Are you…
- Worried about balancing relationships, work, and school?
- Feeling more blue than normal?
- Having trouble concentrating?
- Feeling anxious and nervous?
- Upset about a relationship?
- Trying to overcome your past?
- Hearing from family and friends that they are worried about you?
- Concerned about a friend or family member?
- Looking for a new mental health provider?
The Counseling Center can help you with the above issues, and many more. The Counseling Center staff is dedicated to providing a confidential atmosphere to assist all students.
Cultural diversity statement
The TWU Counseling Center fully supports and respects issues of multicultural diversity and individual uniqueness. We view diversity as encompassing a broad spectrum of intersecting identities including ethnic/racial identity, nationality, sexual identity, gender identity and expression, age, ability status, religious/spiritual identity, socioeconomic status, body shape/size/appearance, and family composition. We recognize the critical impact of these variables on a person’s lived experiences and are committed to creating a safe and welcoming environment where all of our unique identities are nurtured and affirmed.
We acknowledge the effects of systemic oppression, discrimination, stereotypes, prejudice, power, and privilege on students’ lives. At times, these factors significantly limit our students from achieving their fullest potential in their educational journey, physical health, and emotional well-being. To counteract this, we take responsibility for contributing to a university campus community that is embracing and inclusive of all diversity. We strive to live this responsibility by committing to our own life-long process of enhancing our multicultural competence, advocating for our students when appropriate, and engaging in difficult dialogues about these issues individually, as an agency, and as a member of the broader campus and national community.
