Please note: During the COVID-19 pandemic, ongoing Counseling and Wellness Services are available through telehealth to students located in Maryland and waivered states. If we are unable to provide services in the state where a student is currently located, we can provide referral information and/or consultation services to help locate local providers and services where a student is currently residing.
Counseling and Wellness Services mission is to promote psychological well-being so that students may fully and effectively engage in all the opportunities available at the University. Counseling and Wellness provides free and confidential counseling, referrals, and related services to students in their pursuit of personal and academic growth, including the strengthening of their emotional, intellectual, behavioral, cultural and spiritual development.
Counseling and Wellness strives to provide a safe and welcoming environment for all students. We recognize that MUIH students have a variety of intersecting identities, including age, ethnic/racial and cultural identity, religion/spirituality, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, socio-economic status, nationality, body shape/size, and ability. We strive to help students explore and affirm the importance of their identities and life experiences with regard to diversity, and how this might relate to the questions and issues students would like to address in counseling.
Counseling and Wellness recognizes that students encounter barriers in the form of stereotypes, prejudice, discrimination and oppression, and deal with issues related to power and privilege that significantly affect their well-being. We understand that these barriers may affect access to and experience of our services, and we are committed to helping overcome these barriers in a respectful, affirming and educational manner.
The Counseling and Wellness staff members value our own diversity, challenge each other’s biases and support one another in providing more multiculturally competent services. We understand that our progress toward multicultural competence is an ongoing process, and we support and challenge each other’s journey through dialogue and professional development.
