Midland University Counseling Services Mission Statement
The mission of the Midland University Counseling Center is to provide students with free, confidential, short-term mental health treatment with referrals to community agencies for long-term mental health treatment. Our counselor will work with you to identify presenting issues that are affecting your educational experience and collaboratively specify goals that promote mental and emotional well-being. Our intent is to enhance each student’s experience by providing them with a counseling service that promotes a balanced lifestyle academically, mentally, socially, and spiritually. Our counselor strives to create a safe and supportive counseling environment that respects the diversity of every student.
Counseling discussions between the student and counselor are kept confidential and will not be revealed to anyone, unless the student gives written authorization to release information. There are four exceptions to confidentiality:
- In the event of clear and present danger to self or others.
- In the event of child abuse or abuse of a dependent adult.
- In the event of a court order.
- In the event of appropriate inter-departmental collaboration.
