The Salem College Wellness Center, composed of Counseling Services and the Office of Student Wellbeing, is committed to enhancing student wellbeing. Working from a comprehensive and integrative wellness model, our Wellness Center staff are dedicated to supporting students and the Salem College community throughout their college experience.
Office of Student Wellbeing
The Salem College Office of Student Wellbeing educates, encourages, and empowers students to create and sustain healthy lifestyles. The Office offers a nationally recognized, comprehensive women’s wellness program for its students.
Be Well! is a campus-wide initiative, owned by every member of the Salem College community. Through our unique and innovative wellness classes, campus-wide wellness initiatives, and community outreach efforts, the Office of Student Wellbeing leads the campus in creating a culture of wellbeing for students, faculty, and staff, and the greater Salem Community.
Through a mixture of socially distanced on-campus programming and virtual programming, we will maintain continuity of exceptional, student-centered wellness programming.
The Office of Counseling Services is dedicated to continuing to support and provide services for students dealing with emotional and mental health concerns. The health and safety of our community is a priority as we adapt to the COVID-19 threat. Therefore, Counseling Services will provide teletherapy, virtual outreach activities and programs, and online psychoeducational groups, as well as collaborate with The Office of Wellbeing and Salem’s student organizations to ensure that students are supported as we adjust to the “new normal.” There will be continuous updates to keep students informed as additional information and resources develop.
We are here to support you for personal counseling, consultation, referral, virtual groups, and resources in the area where you live. We understand that online learning, dealing with COVID-19, and the social injustice in our world can bring a lot of uncertainty and emotions, so please contact us by calling 336 721-2625 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Employees (faculty and staff) and their immediate family members, including spouses and children living in their home, who need assistance with mental or emotional health may use the Salem-sponsored Employee Assistance Program (EAP). The EAP is a Salem-sponsored benefit that offers support resources and information, including counseling sessions, to address challenges and concerns. The free counseling services are available to full-time, benefit eligible employees. All employees can register an account through the guidance resources website to access toolkits and online resources. The EAP is a free service for employees and completely confidential. For more information about the EAP, please refer to the April 17, 2020 EAP email memo from the Office of Human Resources. A copy of the EAP email memo is also located in the COVID-19 HR Repository (Information, Updates, and Memos) at MySalem (my.salem.edu) under Services at the HR, Payroll, and Benefits tab.
