Counseling and Wellness Services


“Problems do not go away. They must be worked through or else they remain, forever a barrier to the growth and development of the spirit.” –M. Scott Peck

The College of Podiatric Medicine understands how balance and wellness are key components of a successful student and as research has shown, psychological wellness is linked to academic success. CPM provides free and confidential mental health counseling at its Independence campus and has partnered with Case Western Reserve’s University Counseling Services to provide counseling and additional services such as psychological testing, psychiatric evaluations, alcohol and substance assessments and recovery support to meet our student needs.
