To a large degree, the progress you make in counseling will depend on your active and genuine involvement. Here are some things you can do to enhance your experience in counseling:
We have compiled a list of psychotherapists in the community who have expressed an interest in working with HWS students. In addition to consulting with your health insurance provider if appropriate, you may find this list helpful if you are seeking area services, including long-term individual therapy.

We have also put together a list of area providers of psychoeducational evaluation to assist students who may have concerns about development, learning, memory, academics, behavior or related mental health not recently assessed in full. Such assessment, when done properly, will also consider a student's current problems and history, along with cultural differences and possible impairments in speech/language, hearing, vision and motor development. Thorough psychoeducational evaluation is invaluable in identifying specific ways to help individual students succeed.

The Center for Counseling and Student Wellness, College Store and library have collaborated to make available a selection of recommended self-help books for the campus community. These books address a wide range of concerns, including depression, anxiety, shyness, relationships and more.
To a significant degree the selected books are drawn from a more comprehensive resource, the Authoritative Guide to Self Help Resources in Mental Health, by John C. Norcross and others (revised edition published in 2003, ISBN 1572308397).
Below, we've listed some of our favorite books. We invite you to visit the College Store and library to explore these and other books further.
