  • Available Services

    Counseling is a confidential resource available to 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 a physician assistant, nurse practitioner, registered nurse, consulting psychiatrist, and medical director.  We can provide a wide range of services, including: evaluation and treatment of illness and injury, physical exams, routine immunizations, laboratory testing, and STI testing for women & men. We also provide women’s health services including: Pap tests, pregnancy screening, emergency contraception, and birth control counseling and supplies.

If you fail to attend an appointment without notifying us at least 2 hours in advance, you will be charged a "no-show" fee (assessed to your student account). The fee for a missed appointment with a medical provider or counselor is $15.00. The fee for a missed appointment with the psychiatrist is $50.00.
