Confidential resources for students

Center for Counseling and Wellness

If you have experienced sexual assault, discrimination, harassment or other event that needs processing, consider reaching out to the Center for Counseling and Wellness for support. Counselors are available to listen and help you process through what happened, how it has impacted you and what next steps may be helpful for moving forward. The center can also help connect you with community resources, such as the YWCA in downtown Grand Rapids, that offer free and specialized resources for individuals who have experienced unwanted sexual contact (either as children or adults).

To set up a screening appointment, call (616) 526-6123, stop by the Counseling and Wellness office (SC 368) or fill out a Sign-Up Request form online.
