Charges for health services in the community are usually sent directly to students. Student Financial Services handles all questions pertaining to billing and enrollment in the SNHU insurance plans.
Personal and emotional problems are a normal part of life. A student with many strengths and abilities may experience difficulties that can be effectively resolved through counseling. The counseling service offers professional trained staff to assist students in coping with problem areas in their life that might interfere with maximizing their college and life potential. We can assist you in assessing those areas and help you find new understanding.
Examples of some difficulties experienced by college students include problems in interpersonal relationships, depression, anxiety, substance abuse, poor sleep habits, anger, body image, conflicts with one's family, and grieving over the loss of a friend or family member.
Services provided by the counseling service are confidential and include individual and group counseling, referral to off campus resources, crisis assessment, consultation, educational programs and educational videos.
