When to Refer

The college years can be a time of both excitement and stress for students. Sometimes new challenges, stresses, and freedoms can lead to difficulties.

Common problems that students sometimes experience while in college include:
depression
stress management
eating/body image issues
anxiety
substance abuse
time management
relationship concern

If these problems are not addressed, they may result in emotional, academic, or social difficulties for the student.

The New College of Florida Counseling & Wellness Center can often help students resolve their concerns so they can feel better and get "back on track" with their academic work.

Services Offered at the Counseling Center

The Counseling & Wellness Center is a confidential service available to all currently registered New College and University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee students. We provide a variety of services to help students achieve their academic and personal goals while they are at New College or USF-Manatee, including individual and group therapy, psychiatric consultation and medication management, and outreach programming.

The Counseling & Wellness Center staff may also facilitate referrals to other on-campus or off-campus service providers when appropriate. Referrals are made when the student's concerns are better addressed elsewhere, or when the student's concerns are beyond the scope of the services we provide.
