Confidentiality must be breached when additional legal requirements demand. Confidentiality boundaries and limitations is discussed with each client in an ongoing fashion.
The MHWC offers all Goldey-Beacom College students professional mental health counseling free of charge.
Short term clinical services are offered to students as needed. These services include, but are not limited to, initial appointments to determine the level of support needed, short-term therapy/consultations, and long-term community referrals. Services can be accessed by emailing HealthAndWellness@gbc.edu to schedule an initial appointment.
Drop In Hours
Drop In Hours are available throughout the academic year to afford students the ability to receive informal support from the MHWC without an appointment. These hours are sent out in student newsletters and posted on the MHWC social media.
