Relationships

Due to the nature of counseling and safety of our staff and students during these COVID-19 times, we will be offering our same quality services virtually until the university has entered Phase Green under the Covid-19 Response Plan.  For more information and to check current phase, please visit the Covid-19 Response Page.

As relational beings, our mental health can be greatly impacted by the quality and state of our relationships.  Making new friends, maintaining our relationships, and ruptures in our relationships can have significant impact on our mental health so it is important that we stay active and attuned to our relationships both for ourselves and those we are in relationships with (our families, friends, significant others, etc.).  Identifying unhealthy relationship patterns is very important – no matter how long you have been in the relationship – to learn ways to take care of yourself, set boundaries, and/or end relationships that are negatively impacting you and your mental health.
