Counselors engage in campus outreach to promote mental and emotional awareness and well-being to students. Beginning freshman year, students are engaged by counselors on topics such as thriving through stress, overcoming perfectionism, managing moods, and developing skills to lessen anxiety. Our student led Peer Support organization contributes to mental health on campus by leading a weekly support group and raising awareness through projects and speakers. Staff led trainings and programs are available upon request to student groups and residence life.
All counseling services are confidential and provided within the ethical and professional standards of the American Psychological Association and American Counseling Association. Students who attend counseling can rest assured that their information is protected and not shared with others, except in specific emergencies, which counselors will review at the initial appointment. Students must sign consent forms to permit communication to others. This may include consent to be assessed for medication through Zerbe Health and Wellness Center.
At the Counseling Center, we value mentoring the next generation of Christian counselors. We have a robust internship training program for Master’s level students completing their final phase of training. We accept students from various institutions of higher education who have a faith commitment to the Lord. For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
THRIVE is a student-led organization, working with the Grove City College Counseling Center to promote mental well-being on campus. Our motto is “strive to thrive,” for which we plan and host events on campus to encourage students to focus on their mental health as important to their overall well-being. Over the years, we have hosted speakers to come to campus, presenting to faculty and students; put on our annual De-Stress Fair for students to rejuvenate before finals week; held weekly meetings in a group setting for students to support each other in a Christ-like manner; and created and hosted a four-week Freshmen Transitions Series for new freshmen and transfer students on campus.
