Health and Counseling Center

Counseling Services

The Health and Counseling Center offers short-term personal counseling. Counseling is free and available to all full-time undergraduate Carthage College students.

Summer Hours

Counseling services are available by appointment only during the months of June and July. To set up an appointment, please call the Health and Counseling Center at 262-551-5710 or stop by to fill out an appointment request.

During the academic year, students can be seen by appointment Monday through Friday, 8:30am to 5:00pm (the last appointment time of the day is 4:00pm). Counseling walk-in services are typically available daily from 11:30am to 1:00pm. Students can be seen for brief visits (20-30 minutes) on a first-come, first-served basis. If needed, additional follow-up visits can be scheduled. 

Challenges often addressed during counseling include:

  • Managing emotions such as anxiety, depression, guilt, grief, and anger
  • Personal, family, and relationship challenges
  • Traumatic experiences
  • Educational and academic goals
  • Problems with sleep
  • Difficulty with alcohol or other substances
  • Sexual, emotional, and physical abuse

The Health and Counseling Center does not offer 24-hour services. If you need after hours or crisis care assistance, please refer to the After Hours / Crisis Care tab.

The Health and Counseling Center offers additional services to the entire Carthage community, including consultation for students, faculty, staff, and concerned others and education on various mental health and wellness topics.
