The Counseling Center offers high quality counseling services to Fairmont State's undergraduate and graduate students.  Psychological, emotional, and mental well-being are important contributors to academic success, personal growth, and responsible citizenship.  Students can obtain assistance with a variety of issues that affect their cognitive, intra- and inter-personal, emotional, spiritual, and academic development through individual counseling, group counseling, training, consultation, and referral services.
