Our mission: All services are designed to support student wellness through free and confidential counseling to SPU undergraduate students, and offering support to the SPU community by way of consultation, referrals, and campus engagement.

We strive to provide all services with compassion, respect, and sensitivity to the uniqueness of each concern and diversity of each student. The SCHW is welcoming and inclusive of all students. This includes students of any race, ethnicity, national origin, age, religion, ability, gender identity, and sexual identity.

Students seeking mental health support may access the Patient Portal (above) at any time to schedule* their initial consultation appointment, message their provider, complete intake forms, and more. Students with an urgent need during business hours should come directly to the Center or call the front desk for a same-day appointment. After hours crisis resources are provided under the Immediate Support tab.

*Online self-scheduling is only available during the academic year (Fall, Winter, and Spring quarters).
