The focus of Wellness Centers is to provide safe, supportive environments on school campuses where students can be provided support for a variety of issues from stress, anxiety, depression, grief, family life and health needs. Through both on-campus programming and community-based partnerships, students receive coordinated wellness support, counseling and other services to maximize student engagement and success.
