Counseling and Psychological

Campus resources

The Counseling Center offers a range of services designed to promote the personal growth, academic success, and emotional health of students.  Stress, relationship problems, depression, academic difficulties, and anxiety are among some of the most common reasons students seek help.  Identity development, including sexual identity development, is also an important aspect of college students’ lives in general and LGBTQ students in particular.  Counseling may be beneficial for this normal developmental process in clarifying and defining values, needs, goals, ambitions, and sense of self. LGBTQ students may also benefit from support through the coming out process.  Further, help is available for those who have been affected by hate, harassment, and discrimination.  Counseling is confidential and free.

The Campus Against Violence (CAV) Program represents Salisbury University’s commitment to ending sexual violence in all its forms; sexual assault, domestic violence and stalking on campus and providing students with knowledge and skills that will serve them throughout their lives. Over the next two years, the CAV program housed in the Counseling Center, will ensure that the university has a coordinated response to issues of sexual assault, domestic violence and stalking among students through peer education, counseling services for affected students, skills training, public awareness campaigns and working in collaboration with faculty, staff and students to create a community that is actively engaged in the prevention of sexual violence.
