Winona is now your home and there are many resources available in the community, whether you are looking for leisure activities, professional services, support groups or volunteer opportunities. Being a part of the WSU and MSC-SE Technical communities ushers you into the larger community of the City of Winona. There are many resources here outside the University and you are encouraged to explore them. Winona is also a wonderful place for outdoor activities.
Also, here is a list of support groups, volunteer opportunities and outside mental health agencies. Because WSU Counseling Services is designed for short-term counseling, students are referred to a counselor in the community if longer-term counseling is in the student’s best interest.
Many mental health resources can be found on-line and we've assembled a list of self-help resources that cover many general and specific health concerns college students may have. While we've tried to select only high quality sites, please read carefully. These sites are not maintained by WSU Counseling Services and we cannot guarantee the accuracy of all information. Furthermore, these online self-help resources are intended to educate and inform students, not to replace a need for personal counseling. Please call 507.457.5330 for information about accessing one of our professional staff.
