At Washington State, we’re concerned about the mental health and well-being of our students, staff, and faculty. We offer a variety of services, both in-person and virtual, to those experiencing emotional and psychological problems that are interfering with their ability to achieve success.


Our mental health counselor, Jennifer Simmons, is available to meet with students on campus in the library building from 9 AM - 2 PM on Mondays and virtually by appointment. Her office is just to the right of the main entrance inside the library. Services include:

  • Individual and group Mental Health Counseling
  • Substance Abuse Counseling
  • Couples Counseling
  • Adolescent and Child Counseling (Parenting)
  • And Referral Services

Medicaid accepted and copays for private insurance will be waived so students can use this service at no cost. To make an appointment, call 740.249.8061.

Online Support

WSCC is excited to offer an online and anonymous option to support students called 7-Cups of Tea. You can access the service from anywhere using a web browser or download the app via the App Store/Google Play. The service offers trained listeners, peer support groups, recovery plans, and an anonymous way to reach out to a trained counselor. All of this is available at no cost.
