Counseling, Health, Wellness Services
Being a healthy college student means having confidence and energy to live each day to its fullest. Good emotional and physical health is achievable when people care about themselves and each other, when people make decisions and practice skills to enhance well-being, and when people respect each other as unique individuals.
At Western, we believe students who are actively encouraged and supported in their efforts to be well are better able to achieve their personal and academic goals. In Counseling, Health, and Wellness, our emphasis on personal and community well-being is reflected in our departmental missions and in the programs, services, and resources we offer. We invite you to visit our individual departmental sites by clicking on the links below, and we encourage you to reach out to us for support.
Wellness is practiced throughout Western’s campus, not just within departments such as ours that focus on it. For resources and information on how you can practice wellness campus-wide, please visit cwc.wwu.edu/bewell.

The Student Health Center
The Student Health Center provides as broad a range of care as you would find in a family practice physician's office. A team of physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, medical assistants, and health counselors staff the Health Center.
