Counseling, Health, & Wellness Services



  • The number of people infected with the flu continues to rise in the Tacoma area. To protect yourself, consider getting the flu vaccine. Hand washing is another great way to prevent illness. Flu like symptoms include fever, fatigue and body aches in addition to other possible symptoms like a sore throat or cough. Rest, stay hydrated, and take fever reducing medication if you think you may have the flu. Stay home from class to speed up your recover and prevent spreading the flu virus.


Initial Counseling Screenings

  • Initial counseling screenings are offered Monday through Friday from 1-4 p.m. without an appointment. Up to 6 students can be seen during this time on a first come, first serve basis.  This screening may be a one-time session for short-term acute issues, but it is also the process for initiating longer term ongoing counseling with CHWS therapists.


  • To make or cancel an appointment, call CHWS at 253.879.1555, stop by our office, or visit the CHWS Communication Portal on myPugetSound under the Resources menu.
