Student Wellness Center

Student Wellness Center provides integrated mental health, physical health, and wellness education services to assist all CCSU undergraduate and graduate students in the pursuit of academic success, a fulfilling college experience, and a healthy lifestyle.

Counseling and health services typically provided through the Student Wellness Center are now provided through an on-line telehealth system.  Calls made to the SWC are answerd by one of our front office staff; front office staff may be working remotely from home or may be in the office.  All counselors and health service providers will primarily provide srvices using telehealth, although on-site services may be available in limited circumstances.  

Managing Stress while Learning On-line

While mild to moderate levels of stress are typical for college students, heightened and prolonged feelings of stress can lead to increased levels of anxiety, depression, and other mental health challenges, as well as medical issues.  Adapting to new technologies, feeling less connected to peers and campus supports, and coping with other changes can leave students feeling overwhelmed and not in control.  Taking proactive steps to minimize stress is vital to effectively managing the stress that can come from this rapid change while also coping with the stress and worry associated with COVID19.  Click here to access strategies we recommend to cope with stress under these unusual circumstances.

For all questions and concerns please email or call at the telephone numbers listed. Thank you.
