Mental Health and Wellness Counseling


College can be tough on your mental health and many people are experiencing added challenges amid the uncertainty of COVID-19 as well as the unrest in our communities resulting from the murder of George Floyd, Daunte Wright, and countless others.

Our counselors are available to help you identify healthy ways to cope with the issues that come up as you pursue your education.  We believe all students can thrive with relevant, consistent support and want you to know that we are here to be a part of your success team.

We are currently offering in-person and virtual counseling appointments. Our services are free and confidential for all current Minneapolis College students. 

To Schedule an Appointment:  

Log in to Navigate, select "Appointments," then select "Mental Health and Wellness Counseling." Be sure to have your star ID and password information handy as you will need both to access Navigate.
