Caring for Students’ Mental Health
The Kalamazoo College Counseling Center is a safe place for students to confidentially work through their concerns and improve their mental well-being.
Students can experience a range of emotions throughout their four years at K: excitement, sadness, homesickness, grief, questioning identity, and stress—sometimes all at once. To help students process their emotions and improve their mental health, Kalamazoo College provides free counseling services.
Counseling is not just for students who have a major problem; all students who would like someone to talk to are encouraged to make an appointment.
While each student comes in with unique concerns, the most frequent issues that bring students to the counseling center are depression, anxiety, trouble in social relationships and family dynamics, stress, self-esteem, eating issues, sexuality concerns, and the use of substances.
