"Wellness is a prerequisite to all else. Students cannot be intellectually proficient if they are physically or psychologically unwell."
Wellness means different things to different people. At Nazareth, we are committed to offering you more than a quality education. We are dedicated to providing you with quality supportive services so that you can be at your best physically, emotionally, socially, spiritually, and intellectually.
The Student Wellness Center is your one-stop-shop for your physical and psychological needs. Located in the former psychology building, we house two distinct departments- Student Health Services and Counseling Services- and work collaboratively to offer you the best care possible. Because the body and mind are so intricately connected, physical ailments can impact our mental health and emotional or relational struggles can impact our physical health. The Student Wellness Center staff strives to understand the complex mind-body connection and to provide you with the most comprehensive, holistic care possible.
**It is important to note that while we share a receptionist and waiting room, clinical information about students is NOT shared between the two departments without the student's express consent. Confidentiality regulations for both medical and psychological services are explicitly followed.**
