WELCOME TO WCSU COUNSELING SERVICES
The WCSU Counseling Services offers free and confidential services to the university community. We are currently offering telecounseling sessions for matriculated students, as well as virtual outreach activities for the campus community. Students, faculty, and staff can also request guidance from the Counseling Services if they have concerns about a student or a specific situation.
For more information about counseling, consultation, or educational programming, please call the Counseling Services’ main number at 203-837-8690 during business hours, M-F, 8:30am – 4:30pm (closed 12-1pm). We hope as you are adapting to new and changing circumstances that you and your loved ones are healthy and safe.
The Counseling Services stands against racial and social injustices and mourns the lives of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, as well as the endless list of people of color who have lost their lives to racism.
Racism, discrimination, and inequality are interwoven through the many facets of our history, our communities, and our daily lives. This is clearly represented by the manner in which people of color are disproportionately impacted by COVID-19 and the hardships this perpetuates as a result.
The Counseling Services is committed to actively supporting antiracism in our community by learning, listening, leading, and creating dialogues amongst faculty, staff, and students. We recognize that students are experiencing a range of reactions and emotions to the recent events, especially students of color, and the Counseling Services is available to offer support.
