ABOUT THE COLLEGE OF WILLIAM & MARY

The William & Mary Counseling Center is the sole mental health unit on campus with the primary responsibility of providing a range of mental health services to students, and related support to the campus community. Our role is congruent with the mission of William & Mary, and the Division of Student Affairs, which is to prepare students to learn, lead and live with integrity and purpose. In so doing, the Counseling Center seeks to provide services that allow students to achieve their personal and educational goals. These services include the provision of mental health practices intended to reduce psychological distress, treat clinical conditions, and enhance well-being and personal growth. Our interdisciplinary team facilitates primary education and prevention activities, provides support to students experiencing normal developmental issues associated with the transition from adolescence to early adulthood, provides support for emerging, acute, and chronic clinical concerns and responds to individual student and campus-wide immediate crises. Based on clinical assessment of an individual student’s needs, we make evidence-based recommendations drawing from the resources available on campus, in the local area, and in the student’s home community when necessary. The Counseling Center actively demonstrates commitment to diversity in its broadest form and serves as an advocate for social justice in the university community and beyond. Through our multi-level training program, we dedicate ourselves to instilling these practices and values in future professionals. 


The WMCC is located in the Integrative Wellness Center along with the other departments within the Health and Wellness Thematic Area including: the Center for Mindfulness and Authentic Excellence, the Health Center, the Office of Health Promotion, and offices of Campus Recreation.

William & Mary values diversity and invites applications from underrepresented groups who will enrich the research, teaching and service missions of the university. The university is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer and encourages applications from women, minorities, protected veterans, and individuals with disabilities
