Welcome

STATEMENT FROM THE COUNSELING CENTER REGARDING HURRICANE MICHAEL:

The Georgia Southern University Counseling Center is thinking of our fellow University System of Georgia institutions that were effected by Hurricane Michael. We hope to provide support as best we can during this trying time.

With the relocation of students and staff from Albany State University to the Georgia Southern Armstrong campus following Hurricane Michael, we recognize it is important to have crisis debriefing and counseling available for those who may be feeling particularly traumatized.  The Counseling Center on the Armstrong campus will have time available for open crisis debriefing and counseling sessions for any of the arriving Albany campus members from 4-6pm today (Friday, October 12) and 12-2pm tomorrow (Saturday, October 13) in Windward Commons. We will have a private room available.

The Counseling Center at Georgia Southern University is where students can go to participate in programs and receive services designed to help them handle day-to-day challenges and encourage their personal growth and development. The Counseling Center is staffed by clinicians who provide services on an individual and group basis at no additional cost to those enrolled as full-time students at Georgia Southern. Counseling sessions are scheduled by appointment.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Georgia Southern Counseling Center supports that of the University in that we consider ourselves partners in the educational process providing assistance to students in coping with personal, educational and psychological wellness concerns. We believe that students are the principal agents of their own growth and offer a variety of services to them and to the university community to facilitate that development.  In addition, the staff believes that inherent to the concept of a university counseling center is the goal of training and developing future generations of mental health practitioners.  In this way, the Counseling Center not only supports, but is also actively engaged in the educational process. Finally, the staff values a diversity of people and ideas, a spirit of inclusiveness, a global perspective and a sense of community as essential conditions of university life.
