Well-Being Strategy Sessions

Well-Being Strategy Sessions provide CUIMC students with a solution-based approach to address your personal, academic and professional concerns. We'll listen carefully, help you strategize, prioritize, problem solve, build skills, and work collaboratively to create a flexible action plan that makes sense for you. Visits are free and confidential.

How Can They Help?

Well-Being Strategy Sessions offer students an opportunity to consult about a range of issues and concerns. Student Health on Haven works through an integrative care framework. While Well-being Strategy session are not counseling or therapy, we sometimes collaborate with Counseling Services and other campus services in our work with students. Students visit us to talk about what is on their mind, to strategize about issues related to academics, relationships, finding a sense of belonging and developing community, stress and burnout, and to learn about resources and programs.

If you are not sure where to go about your concerns, and it’s not an emergency, a Well-Being Strategy Session is a great place to start!
