Counseling, Health, & Wellness Services (CHWS) helps University of Puget Sound students achieve their intellectual, social, and emotional potential by offering professional psychological and primary health care. CHWS is committed to creating an inclusive environment in which we acknowledge individual differences and provide affirming healthcare to our diverse student body. CHWS services are integrated, individualized, and aspire to the highest standards.
CHWS prioritizes student development by emphasizing health promotion strategies, the provision of acute care, and treatment of existing conditions which can interfere with student learning. CHWS supports the Puget Sound mission to “…assist in the unfolding of creative and useful lives.” In so doing, we help 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 a self-aware individual and community member.
