Our mission: Student Wellness Services supports CCSU students by providing services and programs that enhance psychological, emotional, social and spiritual well-being. Our services are available to enrolled full and part-time students including individual, group and relationship counseling. We are staffed by counselors who possess a minimum of a master's degree in a clinical discipline. Counseling services include intake assessments, crisis counseling, brief individual counseling, group counseling, and outside referrals. All of our counseling services are free of charge and with full confidentiality.

There is no limitation to what we counsel students for, nor is there any issue that is "too small to bother". Students may find difficulty focusing on life or academics due to depression, anxiety, relationship issues, drug and alcohol problems, eating disorders, and gender issues - to name just a few. You may just need a listening ear. We are here for you.

Students can schedule appointments in-person, or by calling (860) 832-1926.
Prevention is a priority. Many problems may be minimized or avoided before a crisis occurs.

Here you'll find tools such as self-assessments on depression, eating disorders, alcohol abuse (eCHUG) and marijuana abuse (eTOKE). If you find that you are concerned with the results of any of the self-assessments, please print out your results and contact us to setup an appointment. You can then discuss these concerns one-on-one with a counselor in a judgement-free and safe environment. Please visit our Frequently Asked Questions section for more information about us.

If you've already visited us, please fill out our Satisfaction Survey, as we highly value your input.
