Welcome to UNC Asheville's Health and Counseling Center. Our services are designed to promote and maintain the health of all students to maximize academic success. We strive to meet the individual needs of each student by providing confidential health and counseling services and referring to appropriate community resources, if needed.
The UNC Asheville Health and Counseling Center is staffed with professionals from a variety of disciplines who work together to provide the most effective care possible. These professionals include: a physician, physician assistants, family nurse practitioners, registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, psychologists, licensed professional counselors and highly qualified support staff.
The UNC Asheville Health and Counseling Center believes that health education and promotion are important to the learning outcomes for all students. The staff engages students in a variety of health promotion activities that focus on topics which are relevant to most college students including stress management skills, healthy eating behaviors, safer sex, and mature choices about alcohol use. The purpose of these activities is empowering students to take responsibility for their own health and to teach lifelong behaviors for engaged, healthy living.
