Counseling Services

Wellness is a priority at Marshall B. Ketchum University. MBKU offers students a continuum of wellness support including mental health and counseling services.

Mental health includes emotional, psychological and social well-being. Individualized counseling services are available to students on a temporary, part-time, and flexible schedule throughout the year. Students needing long-term therapy are referred to their health care professional. A list of local mental health and assessment providers is located within the Student Achievement Center Moodle course.

Services are student-centered, culturally sensitive and respectful of the diverse backgrounds and experiences of students.
