University Counseling Center
The Winston-Salem State University Counseling Center offers a range of counseling and mental health services to the University campus. The center is committed to enhancing the academic mission and goals of the University through a variety of services. Counseling Center staff welcome students who have diverse backgrounds, beliefs, and orientations.
If you are a student, you may be interested in individual, group or couples counseling. Confidentiality concerning Counseling Center services is guaranteed, except in rare circumstances. You may want to look at our more detailed confidentiality statement.
For faculty, staff, parents and friends who are concerned about an individual student or an issue affecting mental health on campus, the Counseling Center is always available for consultation. We often provide assistance to those concerned about the well-being of others as they consider how to respond and when to make a referral to the Counseling Center.
In addition, training and outreach, are provided to enhance the health of the campus community.
During the academic year, staff are available to respond to crises both during the day and after hours.
The Counseling Center also has a wealth of self-help information available, in the form of brochures, books, and other resources. A number of these self-help resources are available on-line from a variety of sources. If our staff are unable to respond to your needs, we can make a referral to a provider within the city of Winston-Salem or closer to your home, should you choose that option.
We are always interested in your feedback about our services, our policies, our web page, or other issues affecting the Counseling Center.
At WSSU, threat assessment is handled by the RAMASSIST Committee. This committee responds to help those identified students of the campus who may be struggling with issues reducing their ability to function effectively in their studies or with life on the campus.
The link to the RAMASSIST committee can be found on the Wellness Center’s main page.
