Some of this data may be alarming to some. Did you know: Almost half of college students who withdrew from school due to mental health concerns did NOT seek help or treatment? Missouri S&T has resources and services to help you, you are not alone. Learn more about those services below.
Student Health Services provides mental health assessments, which involve discussing your symptoms with your provider and answering a few brief questionnaires. Together, you will determine what treatments may be beneficial. This can be as simple as lifestyle modifications (sleep hygiene, physical activity, etc.) or involve treatment with medications.
The Student Health Center offers medication initiation and management services to enrolled students with a mental health diagnosis. Our providers have expertise in the management of mild to moderate anxiety and depression and in the identification and management of substance abuse including nicotine and alcohol.
Counseling services are also available through Student Well-Being. Enrolled students are eligible to see a licensed mental health provider on Missouri S&T’s campus free of charge. Services include mental health assessment, individual counseling, support groups, wellness consultations, and outreach/programming.
To meet with a counselor, call 573-341-4211 or visit 204 Norwood Hall Monday - Friday, 8:00am - 5:00pm.
