Mission

The Counseling Center at Curry College is designed to support students' personal growth, development, and academic success. Our services provide students with an opportunity to understand emotional wellness and to develop skills they can utilize to make healthy choices. In addition, our services offer students a place to learn about ways to manage stressors that affect them personally, as well as their academic progress and goals. We also provide prevention based education that promotes mental health to the College community.

Services

  • The Counseling Center provides predominantly short-term individual counseling to help promote personal and academic success at the College. Additional services include:
    • 24/7 Student Support Line: Don’t worry alone. Currently enrolled Curry College students may access 24/7 emotional support by calling 617-333-2908.
    • Group counseling or psycho-educational workshops
    • Consultation to help faculty, staff, parents and students assist a student in distress, or to refer a student to the Counseling Center
    • The Counseling Center will provide referrals to students in the event that we are unable to offer appropriate clinical services.

Outreach

The Counseling Center provides outreach to the campus community as experts in the field of college mental health by providing the campus with resources, guidance and consultation. 

We provide guidance and consultation to the campus community on Suicide Prevention, Alcohol and Other Drugs, and College Mental Health and Wellbeing. Each of these content areas is intersectional and constructed through a lens of social justice, neurodiversity, and inclusion.

Requesting Outreach

Requests for outreach must be submitted via email to counselingcenter@curry.edu with a minimum of three weeks advance notice for planned events. Please include the preferred date and time, topic and goals for outreach and any other information which would be of assistance. For other events occurring in response to world/community/campus events/incidents, please submit the request at your earliest convenience. During periods of high demand or lack of expertise on a particular subject, we regret that we will not be able to meet all requests. In those situations, every effort will be made to provide information and referral to external resources. Please complete with as much detail as possible to ensure a timely response. Incomplete requests will be returned for completion before review.
