Counseling Center

A successful college experience, and life for that matter, includes challenge, opportunity, success, failure, stress, and growth. At the Counseling Center, we hope that you will not only successfully navigate but also learn and grow from the challenges you face during your time at JHU. We hope that you will succeed academically; build strong, supportive relationships with friends and mentors; and develop your understanding of your chosen field of study and of yourselves. We also hope that when you do struggle or fail, which we all do, you will learn from the experience and bounce back stronger.

We are here to provide emotional support and assistance for your mental health needs as you make your way through your time at JHU. Explore our website to learn more information regarding our services, which are both confidential and free to eligible students.

A Message from the JHU Counseling Center

All of us are in the position of needing to figure out how to best cope with the many tragic, upsetting and unjust events that have been occurring all too frequently in our country and around the world. We frequently have to deal with an intense mix of feelings about events such as the killings of young black men, the shootings of police officers, mass shootings, and/or brutal acts of terrorism in the U.S. and abroad. Any one of these, and all of these combined, can have traumatic effects on us. We offer the Counseling Center as a place for students to express and sort through your feelings, receive support, and work to help you strengthen your ability to take care of yourself. Explore our Additional Resources page for information about trauma and for suggestions for adaptive coping.
