Frequently Asked Questions


I anticipate needing on-going counseling for a psychological concern. Can I work with a psychologist at Student Health and Counseling?

Student Health and Counseling (SHAC) offers short-term individual and group counseling services to enrolled Carleton students. Counselors will meet with students needing longer-term care to help them find appropriate referrals in the community. Student Health and Counseling also provides the services of a psychiatrist whom students may see free of charge, upon referral from another SHAC staff member. Students who anticipate needing long-term counseling or who begin Carleton with a history of serious mental health concerns (chronic depression or anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc.) should consider establishing care with a local Northfield psychological provider. SHAC can help provide appropriate referrals to community providers.
