Mission Statement

Counseling, Health and Wellness Services (CHWS) helps University of Puget Sound students achieve their intellectual, social, and emotional potential by offering professional psychological and primary health care. These services are integrated, individualized, and aspire to the highest standards. CHWS facilitates student development by emphasizing prevention strategies in addition to the treatment of existing conditions and the provision of acute care. Consequently, students develop skills that foster lifelong health: the knowledge and confidence to be one's own health care advocate and the ability to function effectively as an individual and as part of a community.
