We recognize the importance mental health and we have resources available to help you through your college journey.


Southeast students have access to free, professional counseling services. Our licensed and clinically-trained counselors are available to discuss any issues you might be facing. Every counselor will provide confidential, professional, and private counseling sessions. While it might take a couple of tries to find the counselor who feels like the best fit for you, our counselors will do whatever they can to make your counseling experience feel safe and productive. We even have trained graduate counseling interns so you can talk to someone closer to your age, if you prefer. You can learn more and schedule an appointment by visiting Counseling Services.

If you’re not sure about counseling, there are other resources available to you. If you think you might be struggling with anxiety, depression, PTSD, substance use, Bipolar Disorder, or an eating disorder, you can take an online mental health screening. While this is not a replacement for an official diagnosis, it might be able to offer insights into what your next step should be.

We’ve also made plenty of educational resources available to students who may want to explore their mental health journey on their own. Here are a few resources you might find helpful:
