Counseling services are available to full and part-time Saint Joseph's College students.
Though the Saint Joseph's College Counseling Center is primarily a short-term agency, staff can help you explore options if extended service is needed. Client concerns that involve more intensive care, certain specialization or hospitalization may be referred to mental health providers in the community.
Friends, parents, faculty, staff and administrators are encouraged to recommend Counseling Center services when there is concern about a student; however, the responsibility for setting up an appointment belongs to the student.
For a student to make an appointment, or to learn more about available services, he/she can call (207) 893-6637. The hours are 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. The Counseling Center is located on the first floor of Saint Joseph's Hall. The waiting period for an initial (non-emergency) appointment is generally no longer than one week.
The building in which the Counseling Center is housed is not handicap accessible; nonetheless, Counseling Center staff are happy to make alternate arrangements to meet individuals with physical disabilities.
There is no charge for psychological services for students currently enrolled in courses. Students who elect to complete a judicially sanctioned substance abuse assessment at the Counseling Center will be charged a fee.
