Mental Health Counseling Services 


Positive Mental Health is vital in helping achieve academic goals and personal goals. Our staff of Licensed Professional Counselors (under the State of Alabama) provide services to address your mental health concerns.





Counseling Sessions typically range from 45-50 minutes. Following are examples of concerns we address :

​ ​Because everyone is different, Mental Health concerns vary; we address a wide-variety of Mental Health concerns.

  • ​​​​​​Anxiety

  • Substance Abuse

Students with a chronic history of intensive case and crisis management may need additional care. For special need students, we will be glad to recommend community resources for intensive and comprehensive services.
