    Counseling
    Counseling is a free and confidential resource available to all Hamline students.  Our office provides individual, couples, and group counseling.  (The group format is available when there are a sufficient number of students interested in a particular topic.)  The counseling staff can assist students with a variety of concerns, including: depression, anxiety, relationship problems, stress management, identity development, self-esteem, body image, grief/loss, and family concerns.  If you need a level of treatment beyond the services offered at C&HS, the counseling staff can help you with locating a specialist provider in the surrounding area.

    Health Clinic
    Health Services provides ambulatory acute and preventive care to Hamline students.  Our Health Services team includes nurse practitioners, a registered nurse, a consulting psychiatrist, and an M.D. medical director.  We can provide a wide range of services, including: evaluation and treatment of illness and injury, physical exams, routine immunizations, laboratory testing, STI testing for women & men, and equipment loan (e.g., crutches, heating pads, humidifiers, wheelchair).  We also provide women’s health services including: pregnancy screening, emergency contraception, and birth control counseling and supplies.
