Personal counseling is a vital component of the mental health support services offered at The College of St. Scholastica. The Center's counseling staff can assist a student in addressing the feelings and stressors of college life and other important personal concerns. Professional clinicians work closely and confidentially with students on a variety of issues including: developmental transitions (i.e. beginning college, graduation, etc.), relationship problems with peers or family, depression, anxiety and stress, grief and loss, sleep issues, substance abuse, eating disorders, difficulty in handling emotions, religious concerns, and building self-esteem and confidence.
If CSS Duluth Campuses are closed for any reason and all classes and activities are cancelled, appointments with Counseling Services are also cancelled.
Individual and group counseling as well as assistance with referrals to community agencies and resources are available. Workshops are held on a variety of Health & Wellness topics.
There may be times when a life crisis seems overwhelming and a person becomes seriously upset. Such events include suicide threats or attempts, physical abuse, sexual assault, and harassment. During these events it is important to recognize that the crisis does not have to be handled alone: there are resources available on and off campus for sensitive, supportive help. All threats or attempts to injure oneself or others should be considered as serious events that require intervention. This intervention will involve college counselors and other campus staff members, and may include community referrals for more structured support and evaluation.
Any student who is aware of someone in crisis and in need of services should immediately notify Security (Ext. 6175), the Residence Advisor, the Counseling Center (Ext. x6085), or Student Health Service (Ext. 6282.) They will consult with you to help decide the best course of action.
After hours resources (4:30 pm-8:00 am, weekends, and holidays) include regional, statewide and national support:
