Student Healthcare and Counseling Services
Health Services at Newberry College contributes to the physical, academic, emotional, and social development of students by providing quality healthcare for students. We do this through offering free general healthcare services, and by counseling students who are experiencing emotional/behavioral or learning difficulties. We are also committed to promoting healthy behaviors for all students through health education. Health and Counseling Services operates with a commitment to confidentiality, ethical behavior, and practices that reflect current research and professional standards.
