Taking Care of Yourself 

Mental Health Online Screening Program

 The Counseling Service is pleased to announce that we are now offering an Online Screening Program for Mental Health to all Wellesley College students.  This tool provides online screening for depression, alcohol, bipolar disorder, eating disorders, generalized anxiety disorder and posttraumatic stress disorder.  It is free and anonymous and is being provided so that users can find out, in a private and confidential manner, whether professional support would be helpful.  (This link can only be accessed via MyWellesley.)  more...
