It is the mission of the Director of Counseling and Wellness Services to promote the personal development and psychological well-being of all students, and to provide an environment that is conducive to growth and learning.
Free and confidential short-term counseling is available for Fayette campus students seeking help with personal, social, or emotional issues.
Counseling is designed to help you identify behaviors or ways of thinking that are interfering with your happiness and/or ability to function, and to guide you in making the necessary changes to fulfill your personal goals.
As a client, you should be aware that you have the following rights:
The law protects the privacy of all communications between a client and a mental health professional. In most situations, Counseling Services can only release information about your treatment to others if you sign a written authorization form that meets certain legal requirements.
If you and your counselor agree that it would be beneficial for your counselor to share confidential information about your treatment with someone else, your counselor will prepare an authorization form for your signature.
In some situations, no authorization to release confidential information about a client's treatment is required by law or ethical standards. In these situations, the counselor may release information without the client's permission. Information sharing within Counseling Services for clinical and administrative purposes is routine.
Appointments are available from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday thru Friday. Evening appointments may also be available at the student's request.
