Located in 053 Student Union, in the lower level just below the main entrance, Counseling and Wellness Services (CWS) offers a variety of services and resources to currently enrolled Wright State students including individual and group therapy, psychiatric services, and health promotion programming. Our staff, interns, and residents are here to support Wright State students in a safe, confidential, and inclusive space.

Our services are included in the Counseling and Wellness Services Fee on your university bill each semester. This is an optional $20 fee, which covers all mental health services at CWS for no additional cost for the semester. If you choose to waive the fee, CWS services are still available to you at the cost of $20 per session. 

We strive to enhance Raider Wellness through our variety of services, including:


One-on-One Services 

CWS provides individual counseling through our skilled team of psychologists, licensed staff counselors, social workers, interns and trainees.


Group Therapy

Did you know group counseling can be just as effective as individual therapy for some students? CWS offers several groups each semester that may be a good fit for you.


Walk-in/Crisis Services 

We offer walk-in services during office hours to immediately connect with a provider for understanding and support.


Faculty & Staff Consultation 

Faculty and staff who have questions regarding student and administrative concerns can contact CWS at 937-775-3407. There are also additional resources available for faculty and staff who may want to assist a student. 


Outreach & Education

CWS is dedicated to being an active presence in the Wright State community through outreach and health promotion efforts.


Raider2Raider Mental Health Peer Mentors 

CWS and the College of Health, Education, and Human Services are proud to coordinate the Raider2Raider Mental Health Peer Mentor program. Students can train to become a peer mentor who can provide support, direction and resources for their fellow Raiders or sign up to be matched with a peer mentor to find community and support on campus.
