College can be tough on your mental health at the best of times, and many people are experiencing added challenges amid the uncertainty of COVID-19.

WSU Counseling Services is here to help you be successful in your personal life as well as academics.

Learn about the mental health services and events offered throughout the semester.

You can also explore online resources to help you cope with stress and anxiety as well as practice meditation and build resilience skills.


Mental Health & COVID-19

We are here to support you and your mental health during this challenging time while still keeping safety as a top priority. We are currently offering in-person as well as telecounseling appointments.

Masks are currently still required in the clinic area and must be worn for all in-person appointments. We also encourage all students to be vaccinated.

In additions, we are taking the following precautions to allow for some in-person appointments:

  • Lobby and office seating is arranged for appropriate physical distancing
  • Students are asked to arrive no more than 5 minutes before their appointment
  • All staff are wearing masks and regularly washing and sanitizing their hands
  • HEPA air purifiers are being used in the lobby and each office
  • Hand sanitizing stations are located around our area and staff
  • Common areas are thoroughly disinfected throughout the day

If you have any questions or want to schedule an appointment, please email counselingservices@winona.edu or call 507.457.5330.

Counseling Services staff will respond as soon as possible, but we may not be available for immediate response.

If you or someone you know are experiencing a mental health emergency, please contact one of the emergency resources.
