Student Health and Counseling

Health Services

 

Welcome to Student Health and Counseling!

Student Health and Counseling (SHAC) is a safe, confidential place where students can receive comprehensive medical treatment and speak with professional clinicians regarding personal issues in both individual and/or group sessions. SHAC is staffed by licensed medical and mental health practitioners.

We have many resources to help you achieve success in College.

All in-person counseling appointments will remain suspended for Spring 2021. SHAC is using a secure platform for virtual individual and group sessions.  Health services appointments must be made in advance (same day appointments are typically available).  We take great care to maintain our students’ safety, so, we are offering well visits in the morning and sick visits in the afternoon.

We also provide access to “drop-in” consultation sessions via our secure Student Health Portal (mville.studenthealthportal.com).  Students who have not yet been seen in counseling and are interested in speaking to a counselor can schedule a same-day appointment by using our online scheduling system.  You can also access our support by using our email or phone as described above. 

Psychiatry

Psychiatry appointments are limited to students who are currently involved in counseling with one of our counselors.  If you do not want to participate in counseling with SHAC, we can assist you with finding a provider in the community for a psychiatry- medication evaluation/management.

Psychiatry appointments will be held virtually.  Students who are interested in scheduling an appointment to meet with our psychiatrist should speak with their counselor.

Group Counseling and Support Groups

Our counseling groups will be offered virtually until further notice.  Please see below for a description of our group offerings.  If you are interested in joining any of the groups, please email shac@mville.edu and a clinician will reach out to you.
