Mental Health and Wellness Counseling

Widgets

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

We want you to know that you do not have to walk this journey alone.  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 we are here to be a part of your success team!

We are currently offering virtual counseling appointments this summer and will offer both virtual and in-person appointments beginning this fall to accommodate various preferences. Our services are free and confidential for all currently registered 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. 

Appointments are 50 minutes long and counselors are usually able to meet with students every two weeks.
