Virtual Wellness

Counseling Center Virtual Wellness Offerings

Our thoughts are with all of our students, their families, and the greater community during this difficult time. To better support students, and the entire WSU community, the Counseling Center will be offering Virtual Wellness programming throughout the remainder of the spring semester. **To learn more about scheduling individual teletherapy with the Counseling Center, or to get connected with a counselor, you can visit our COVID-19 Resource Page here

Check-In and Chat Series

The Counseling Center staff is bringing a new live series to students, addressing the most relevant and pressing concerns of our students at this difficult time, such as: how to manage stress and anxiety in this unprecedented moment, how to navigate loss and grief (heads up: that discomfort you're feeling is grief!) around the many changes and losses students are facing, and more! Counseling Center staff will also be accepting questions from students about the topic of that week in advance of the webcast (send an email with your questions to: lcampbell@westfield.ma.edu) and will be taking students' questions live.

The Counseling Center's third live broadcast is 'Into the Weeds: a Marijuana Webinar.' We encourage students to begin submitting any questions that they may have related to marijuana use and mental health at this time to (lcampbell@westfield.ma.edu). The live webcast will be broadcast on Wednesday, April 29th, from 11-11:30am on Instagram Live! To access the event, visit the WSU Counseling Center's Instagram page, here
