Counseling and Psychiatric Services

The members of Counseling Services are here to support students who are experiencing stress, discomfort or dissatisfaction in their personal lives. Counseling services are confidential and available at no cost to all currently enrolled Winston-Salem State University students.



  • A YANA Champion is not a counselor, but a faculty or staff member that can chat about such topics as difficult classes, roommate challenges and moving away from home adjustments, non-crisis personal issues and concerns.
  • YANA Champions meet with students virtually through Sip & Chat Sessions or at the WSSU Walking Path through the Walk and Talk Session. Each experience is 60 minutes and free of charge.
