Health and Wellness Center

The University Of Olivet Health and Wellness Center mission is to strengthen and support our students in all areas of wellness to help students thrive. We recognize the negative impact on health and wellness created by racism and discrimination in any form. We are committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion in everything we do.


The Health and Wellness Center, located in Mott Academic Center room 212, is the wellness warehouse for three service areas designed to help maintain a healthy lifestyle: counseling and psychological services, health services and wellness services.





There are times when everyone needs a little support. Sometimes a student needs assistance in developing an action plan to resolve an issue, discuss a concern, process a transition, or learn a skill or technique to reduce stress. There are other instances where the struggle may go a little deeper.  With any of these circumstances, a free confidential intake assessment completed by a licensed professional counselor is available to students. Through this confidential intake assessment, the student and clinician will develop a support plan together.  


At the completion of the assessment, any necessary referrals to the appropriate resource will occur. University Of Olivet students may be eligible for up to 5 free counseling sessions at the Health and Wellness Center, depending on the need and treatment plan determined at the intake assessment. Service referrals off-campus are also available for students needing ongoing treatment or support.


Group counseling services are also available for various topics through out the week. Information pertaining to these groups is available through the email Information about the groups are posted throughout the college campus, including the bulletin board area outside the Health and Wellness Center.


To request and/or schedule an assessment please email Students will receive a reply within 24 hours to this email to set up the initial appointment.
