Student Wellness Center

Counseling Services

Dealing with depression, exploring relationship issues, adjusting to college, working through life transitions, and developing positive academic and personal skills are common concerns among college students of all ages. Our professional counselors are trained to assist students in examining and resolving these and other difficulties that might interfere with educational and personal success. The counselors offers individual, couple, family, and group counseling, along with consultations and crisis intervention. These services are free and confidential, and are available to faculty and staff as well as students.

Counseling appointments can be made in person with the Wellness Center receptionist in CE 221, or by calling 268-2267. Office hours are 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Wednesday evening appointments are also possible, based on counselor availability.

Student Health Services

The Casper College Student Health Service Office is maintained in the Strausner Student Center where a registered nurse is in charge. Services, most of which are free, are available for students with ID cards and include the following: physical exams (check with the director for programs which require physicals), administration of immunizations and CLIA - waived lab tests, strep throat testing, blood pressure monitoring, urinalysis, emergency first aid care, office visits, coordination of medical care with community resources, personal health education programs and consultations (individual and group), a women’s specialty clinic per week and a three-hour general physician clinic per week.

A women’s specialty clinic (by appointment Wednesday afternoons) and physician ordered blood testing are done on a sliding/reduced fee basis. Although the service is typically open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, the general physician’s drop-in clinic begins at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday evenings during the fall and spring semesters.
