Private confidential space for your teletherapy appointment is available in the CWC space on the 4th floor of the library. Please call or email to reserve a space if you need one!

During this time when so much is disrupted due to Covid-19, the CWC continues to offer a safe space to talk with someone privately via telehealth. We are currently providing counseling appointments through telehealth video and phone appointments.

To schedule an appointment with a counselor email cwc@norwich.edu, or call (802) 485-2134. This is available to students residing in VT and in other US states with active emergency declarations related to the pandemic.

Phone appointments are available to all students located in the US.

The Counseling and Wellness Center works to provide inclusive, individualized, collaborative care and support to the students of Norwich University in a safe and confidential environment.

Through education and advocacy, we provide the entire Norwich community with the tools, resources, and skills necessary to understand, accept, and promote mental health and wellness. Focusing on strengths and resiliency, we foster opportunities for growth in which students will thrive, personally and academically.

Our primary purpose is to provide psychological support to students as they pursue their academic and personal goals, enhancing the student experience at Norwich. The Counseling and Wellness Center is primarily intended for assessment and short-term counseling, with referrals to local private counselors for longer term treatment or psychological testing, if necessary.

The Center is funded through the University Health Services Fee and there are no additional charges for services. Although we follow a short-term intervention model, the number of sessions varies and is discussed as part of the initial intake process.

Students come to the Counseling and Wellness Center for many reasons, including adjusting to college life, relationship difficulties, grief, family problems, academic stress, issues around identity development, depression, anxiety, eating and weight concerns, substance abuse, and sexual and physical abuse and harassment.

The Counseling and Wellness Center at Norwich University follows privacy and confidentiality guidelines set forth by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), the American Psychological Association, and the American College Counseling Association.

Some limits to privacy exist. With few exceptions involving safety and legal issues, information is not shared outside of counseling sessions without the student’s written permission.

Clinical files are safeguarded and DO NOT become part of the student’s medical or military record. Seeking services through our center will not negatively impact a cadet’s standing. We are a nonmedical facility.
