Mission of Counseling Services
The principal aim of Counseling Services is to address the developmental and mental health issues of students from educational, therapeutic and preventative perspective. These services not only support the traditions of the Sisters of Mercy, but also reflect the philosophy of acceptance, respect, compassion and dignity. Counseling Services provides a confidential environment that is conducive to discussion of any concern or problem. This confidentiality is in accordance with legal and professional guidelines and standards of the state of Rhode Island.
