The counselors and support staff of the Counseling and Human Relations Center wish to offer you our warmest welcome. We know that at times life can be difficult, if not overwhelming. It’s during those hard times that you may be in need of support. That’s why we’re on campus … to listen, understand and offer support to you as you work towards confronting and resolving your problems. We believe that none of your problems are “too small.” If they’re important to you, they’re important to us.
Our services are offered free of charge to all Plymouth State University undergraduate and graduate students.

The Counseling and Human Relations Center will be offering a War Veterans Group to provide PSU students (and possibly some non-students) who are U.S. military veterans of war an opportunity to address issues of coping, stress management, and the aftereffects of their combat and/or non-combat war experiences with other veterans in a safe, confidential, and supportive environment.
While statistics on the incidence/prevalence of students diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome attending universities are not clear, anecdotal evidence seems to indicate that the numbers are rapidly rising. Recently, one of our clients/students brought to our attention the video, “Understanding Asperger’s Syndrome: A College Professor’s Guide.” This video is geared towards faculty and instructors, while a second video, “In My Mind,” is intended to help individuals to better understand the world through the lens of a person experiencing Asperger’s. It is our hope that the videos will support your efforts to better understand and serve this population of students.
If you need additional support/consultation, please don’t hesitate to contact a staff member at The Counseling and Human Relations Center at (603) 535-2461.
