Counseling Services

Advising, Counseling, and Testing Department

Our mission

Counseling Services is dedicated to creating a positive, healthy campus environment and to helping students learn to incorporate principles of wellness into their lives. We assist students in acquiring skills, attitudes, and resources necessary for their success during and after  their collegiate experience at Missouri Southern State University. We provide an atmosphere which promotes their academic, personal, and social development. We contribute to the campus' broader academic mission by training and developing students and professionals, helping build an intercultural learning community and by developing collaborative campus and community partnerships. 

College students often have concerns

About relationships, self-esteem/identity, homesickness, anxiety/stress, grief, and depression. We offer free, confidential, and private one-on-one individual counseling with a trained professional.
