Student Wellness Center

The Student Wellness Center houses both Student Health Services and Student Counseling Services.  While separate departments, both strive to work collaboratively for the physical and mental wellness of Toccoa Falls students.  Wellness is a hallmark of successful, informed, and responsive college students.  It is our desire to help all of our students achieve wellness in all aspects of their lives.

 

Student Health Services

Student Health Services is your go to location on campus to receive guidance on physical ailments and advice on living a healthy lifestyle.  Services include consultations, wellness plans, and assistance in scheduling appointments with local physicians.  Over the counter medications and First Aid supplies are available in Student Health Services.  Student Health Services does not fulfill prescription medication needs.  If an on campus student has a medical need outside of regular office hours, he/she should contact the Resident Assistant or Resident Director on call.  In cases of emergency, students should seek emergency services off campus or call 911.

Student Counseling Center

Our main focus is to care and support the emotional needs of students in a safe and confidential environment.  Our services include working with students to explore issues of concern, process grief and trauma, examine the developmental changes while in college, be available when difficult issues arise, and other areas of psychological distress.  We strive to offer high quality care in a safe place through individual or group therapy sessions.  We partner with campus departments to provide outreach opportunities on a variety of mental wellness topics as well as help refer students to off-campus therapists. Stop by and see us today and know we are here to help.
