Message from CWC Director Nancy Guilbeault:

Hello!  The Center for Wellness and Counseling is making changes regarding delivery of counseling services to students, due to the impact of the Coronavirus outbreak.

CWC counseling staff will no longer be able to offer in-person office appointments for the duration of spring semester. However, WE WILL be offering students 30 minute WELLNESS CONSULTATIONS by phone with a counselor.

To schedule a WELLNESS CONSULTATION with a CWC counselor, please call Dianne Detloff at 612-330-1707, starting Monday, March 23rd.

Phone counseling from ProtoCall services will be available 24 hours a day during the rest of spring semester,  by calling 612-330-1707 and selecting option 1. Students may call with any concern or with more urgent matters. This service allows you to connect directly with a licensed mental health counselor.

We sincerely look forward to hearing from you. All of us at CWC care to support your emotional wellbeing the best that we can under these circumstances.

Best wishes and good health to you,
