The Quinnipiac University Health and Wellness Center's counseling service offers rapid access to care for any student seeking help for emotional distress. 

Counseling is available to undergraduate, graduate and medical students at no cost.

The goal is to assist each student in his or her effort to solve a personal problem that may be impacting negatively on academic performance or the student's quality of life. A related goal during the counseling process is to equip each student with new skills for future problem solving and/or coping with difficult aspects of life.

The counseling service is a resource for students struggling with:

  • stress
  • anxiety
  • depression
  • relationship problems
  • eating disorders
  • alcohol or drug abuse
  • difficulty making decisions
  • low self esteem
  • procrastination
  • the stress of leaving home and adjusting to college life
  • physical or sexual violence
  • loss of a loved one
