Well-Being Resources at SLU
Mental health counseling, spiritual support, and well-being resources are available for all members of the SLU community.
Now and throughout the year, the well-being resources on this page can help you cope with stress, manage ongoing mental health concerns, respond to loss, make sense of traumatic events, and/or find strategies to navigate everyday challenges. Whatever your circumstances, please do not hesitate to access the valuable support mental health professionals can provide.
