The Monmouth College Counseling Center provides a safe, supportive environment where confidential, personal counseling may be received. Counseling Services are free and available to all Monmouth College students.

The Counseling Center, located in Poling Hall, offers flexible and varied approaches to helping students accomplish their personal and academic goals and maximize their experience on campus. We also refer students to off campus resources as needed.

The Counseling Center is staffed with experienced professionals who embrace a philosophy respectful of diversity. Any concern a student brings to the Counseling Center is treated with care and respect.

Why Seek Counseling?

It is not unusual for a student to feel anxious seeking Counseling. You may feel that it is a sign of weakness, or indicate that there is something seriously wrong with you. However, you don’t have to be in crisis or have a mental illness to benefit from counseling.

In recent years college counseling centers across the country have reported significant increases in the number of students seeking services for a variety of personal issues. We believe that knowing when to ask for help is an indicator of personal wisdom and courage.

Students bring many different concerns to our office. Among the issued they come to explore are:

Academic Performance Attention and Learning Problems Alcohol and/or Drug Use and Abuse Adjusting to Campus Life
Sexuality Issues Anxiety, Stress, Worry Depression/ Mood Swings Eating Problems
Family Problems Sexual Assault or abuse experience Relationship Difficulties Homesickness, Loneliness
