The S.A.V.E. Project and Personal Counseling Office recently changed their name to the Student Counseling Center and split into two divisions.
Miranda Carlee, a junior psychology major from Chelsea and the peer educator at the Student Counseling Center, said that the name of the center was changed to help Troy students know what services the organization offered.
“We wanted the name to simply explain what our office does, and that is to provide counseling for students dealing with mental health issues,” Carlee said.
The Student Counseling Center offers counseling services to Troy students that are enrolled in at least a 1 credit hour on-campus course here at Troy.
Students are given a maximum of 10 sessions per semester to meet with a counselor.
“Counseling services may include family problems, stress, depression, anxiety, trouble adjusting to college life, anger management, substance abuse, eating disorders, grief and more,” Carlee said.
These services are both free and confidential.
The Student Counseling Center also hosts events throughout the school year to teach students about mental health and other important issues.
On Feb. 25-26, the Student Counseling Center will be giving out information on eating disorders for Eating Disorder Awareness Week.
The Student Counseling Center will also be hosting multiple events throughout the month of April for Sexual Assault Awareness month.
The Student Counseling Center is open Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Students will need to call to set up an appointment with the center for counseling.
Students can contact the Student Counseling Center at 334-670-3700, or email the center at firstname.lastname@example.org.
