One-on-one counseling provides the opportunity to speak freely and discuss private, personal issues. Students say they gain a wider perspective and develop more options for dealing with stressful situations and feelings. We encourage you to come in for an initial appointment to talk about how counseling might be helpful and to discuss any questions you have about how counseling works. Some students are helped in one visit; while others come to counseling for several weeks. If you need longer term counseling, we can help you make arrangements to see a counselor near campus.
Groups offer the opportunity to learn new skills and to share your concerns in a safe environment by meeting with other students. Some groups are focused on a common concern, such as test anxiety, relationships, transitions, and stress reduction.
Married and unmarried students are welcome to come; both members must be enrolled students at Molloy.
Student Workshops and On-Campus Trainings
Workshops focus on learning new skills to enhance personal well-being and academic success. Previous workshops include test anxiety, stress management, suicide prevention, eating disorders, alcohol and other drugs awareness and prevention. On-campus trainings are available to faculty and staff to assist them in referring students to the SPCC and addressing students' mental health needs. Trainings also include psychoeducational materials.
