Vision , Mission , Values
Our vision is a university counseling center where students identify and foster personal and external resources to help guide them in academic, social and emotional success, growth and development.
To bring this vision to reality:
- We provide counseling, psychotherapy and support services to currently enrolled students.
- We provide outreach, consultation and crisis intervention to the University of West Georgia community.
- We provide clinical training and supervision for graduate level counselors in training.
We always want the University community to be able to say that we are professional, competent, respectful, consistent, ethical, confidential, accessible, accepting, responsive and knowledgeable in the way we do our work.
NOTE: Students should not pursue services at the Counseling Center for the sole purpose of obtaining a letter of support. The Counseling Center does not provide letters at the time of an initial consultation and cannot provide documentation regarding a student's mental health without a history of services at the Counseling Center during the specified time period. If necessary, students are encouraged to seek letters of support from individuals directly involved in their care such as past or present psychological/psychiatric providers, medical doctors or family members.
