Counseling Services at Lynn University provides mental health and substance abuse assistance for students dealing with emotional, psychological, behavioral and social issues. These services are available to currently enrolled students. Concerns or issues, requiring longer-term therapy or specialization, may be referred to community resources. All services and records are strictly confidential, except where specified by law, such as if you are at risk of harm to yourself or others, or involved in child or elder abuse. If you are under the age of 18, we will discuss the boundaries of confidentiality, as they apply to you, during our first contact.  Lynn University Counseling Services is fully accredited by the International Association of Counseling Services, Inc.  Services in Spanish also available.
