Student Counseling Center

Welcome to the SCC

The JU Student Counseling Center is committed to providing support to the JU community. We currently offer counseling services both in-person and virtually through HIPAA-compliant telehealth technology. Session modality options may change periodically to help protect the health and wellbeing of the JU community. Please navigate through the tabs on our website to find helpful information about mental health, wellness, resources, counseling services, and more.

Our Mission

At the Student Counseling Center, we are committed to the development of the whole person: academically, personally, socially, and ethically. We believe that a student’s intellectual and personal development are inseparable, and we are here to help students reach their potential as individuals, both academically and personally.

If, for any reason, we are unable to provide the services that would be most beneficial to you, we will work with you to find the appropriate resources and level of care to fit your individual needs.

Quick Coherence Video

Watch this short video as a guide to practicing restorative heart-centered breathing. This can help to improve your self-regulation, center yourself in the present moment, and get focused on what's ahead of you. It can be especially effective when used before an event, such as a class, team practice, or presentation, or any time that you want to adjust your energy levels, either by calming down or becoming energized, depending on your personal needs.
