A wide array of mental health resources
There are ample mental health resources available for students; the issue can be making those readily apparent and easy to access.
There are ample mental health resources available for students on the Twin Cities campus, almost all of which can be accessed under the umbrella mental health website.
Boynton offers urgent consultation, individual and couple counseling and psychotherapy, medication assessment and management, a variety of group therapies, social work assistance, and chemical health assessment and treatment. Student Counseling Services offers individual and group counseling, career and personality testing, and crisis counseling.
