ESSE NON VIDERI: “TO BE, NOT TO SEEM.”
At St. Joseph’s College our mission is to provide counseling and wellness services that promote the health and well-being of every member of the College community. We aim to provide high-quality treatment, prevention and education in support of the College’s goals and in response to the changing needs of the community.
Our vision is to develop integrative models that advance health and wellness at the College and lead to a more productive academic community through a commitment to the very best service.
The Counseling and Wellness Center is founded on 4 Pillars of Health and Healing:
I. Counseling Services
II. Alternative and Complimentary Services
III. Intervention Services
IV. Outreach Services
The Counseling and Wellness Center at St. Joseph’s College provide a wide range of services that support the holistic development of all students in body, mind and spirit. Wellness is a positive approach to living as it emphasizes the whole person through integrating all aspects of the individual along with the realization that everything you do, think, feel and believe has an impact on your state of health.
A wellness-oriented lifestyle encourages students to adopt healthy habits and behaviors that promote an improved quality of life. It involves the recognition that every individual has physical, psychological, emotional, social and spiritual needs with each dimension being necessary for optimal levels of functioning. Through supporting every student’s physical, mental and spiritual health, students are better prepared to achieve academic success and reach their highest goals and aspirations.
The Counseling and Wellness Center has created goals to assist students with integrating wellness into their lives. The goals are to promote wellness through education, prevention and awareness; improve the overall well-being of the College community; promote services on and off campus; collaborate with professionals in the community; empower students to take charge of their health and research best practices in the wellness field.
