The mission of Berea College Counseling Services is to provide a professional and confidential setting for the psychological, emotional and developmental support of a diverse body of students as they pursue academic goals and explore personal growth. Counseling Services plays an essential role in serving Berea College students through individual and group counseling, referrals to campus and community resources and programming to support and enhance healing, growth and development. Counseling Services helps faculty and staff by providing consultation regarding concerns about a particular student and training and outreach on common mental health issues that can impact a student’s performance.
All professional counseling services are completely confidential. No one, including parents, relatives, friends, or college staff, has access to any information about a student without their consent. The only exceptions are suspected child abuse, threats to harm self or others, emergency hospitalization, or civil lawsuits when one’s mental state is an issue in the case.
College can be a difficult time filled with change, stress and new experiences. These changes can lead students to experience various mental health symptoms and concerns. Berea College Counseling Services therapists are here to help students navigate these changes and stress by providing individual and couple counseling.
