Counseling Helps!


Life Happens. Changes Occur. Stress Happens. Problems Arise.
Counseling Helps

All of us can relate to those statements.
Many times being able to talk it out can help.
Many times we can talk it out with friends and family.
And other times counseling is a useful and effective option.
If your academic plan for success is out of balance due to any reason,
consider counseling services.
The services are free, safe, private and confidential.
Our focus is your success at Kent State University and beyond.
We promote prevention, education and personal empowerment
through our educational and counseling services.
Some of the benefits of counseling include, but are not limited to:
emotional well-being, personal growth, enhanced communication, self-management,
and the opportunity to gain skills that will enhance your health, academics,
relationships and life.
