Welcome to Health and Counseling
UNC Asheville’s Health and Counseling Center provides services that are designed to promote and maintain the health of all students to maximize academic success. We are an integrated center which includes medical, mental health, psychiatric, and health promotion services. The professionals work collaboratively with one another and include: physicians, physician assistants, family nurse practitioners, registered nurses, certified nurse assistants, pharmacists, licensed professional counselors and highly qualified support staff. 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.
All students are entitled to use the Health & Counseling Center free of charge. Most services are provided free of charge or at a nominal fee. A student’s health insurance does not impact their ability to access these on-campus services.
