Counseling & Health Services

Mental and emotional well-being affect every aspect of your life, including relationships with other people, academic performance and self-esteem. At La Roche University, you don’t have to feel alone. The Office of Counseling & Health Services offers free counseling and resources to all students.

Our mission is to aid in the emotional, social and psychological development of our students. We support mental health and wellness to ensure students can reach their personal and academic goals.
