Towson University’s Counseling Center provides brief but comprehensive support services
that promote the personal, social, and academic success of Towson University students.
We help students learn to cope with the stresses of change and growth so that they
can thrive during their college years and beyond.
Welcome to the Center
Welcome to the Counseling Center at Ward and West. Located on the 2nd Floor of the
Health and Counseling Centers.
If you are unsure if you or a friend needs help, please watch Emotion 101, a video created by theHalf of Us campaignto encourage students to get help and remind them that it is okay to seek help.
The Counseling Center also seeks to improve the quality of life on campus as a whole.
Recognizing that the university community includes people with a wide range of concerns
and needs, we provide programs and presentations by request, and offer a full calendar of events during the academic year.
Counseling Center Diversity Statement
The staff members of the Towson University Counseling Center strive to affirm, promote
and celebrate diversity. We are committed to be aware of and understand diversity
in its broadest sense.
The staff at the Counseling Center values the importance of diversity for all individuals.
People from every background are affected by issues of culture. Multicultural competence is therefore an essential
component of our work with every client.
We all benefit from an understanding of how power, privilege, cultural identities
(e.g. gender identity, race, religion, sexual orientation, ethnicity, nationality,
social class, and many others) and individual differences affect our daily experiences.
We recognize that students come to the center at various levels of comfort with these
identities and therefore, make it a priority to meet students where they are. All
of our lives are enhanced by a better understanding of the diverse world in which
Mental Health Screenings
Brief screenings are the quickest way to determine if you or someone you care about should connect
with a mental health professional - they are a checkup from your neck up.
