The Mission Of The Center for Counseling and Wellness

The Notre Dame College Center for Counseling and Wellness (CCW) is committed in providing excellence in psychotherapeutic services to promote student health and safety, personal growth and academic success. The CCW provides an open and safe environment to encourage self-awareness, personal responsibility and healthy interpersonal relationships within a diverse and dynamic campus community. We also provide on campus services to address physical health concerns through the CCW's Health Services. The CCW is involved through collaborative efforts throughout the campus community in creating a vital, safe and respectful learning environment in which to live and thrive.  


Clinicians are ethically committed to confidentiality which is also required by federal and State laws. This means that when you receive services from the CCW, it is kept private and confidential. The law states that there are four exceptions to this general rule: a) you may request (by means of a signed release) that your counselor may reveal information to other individuals or agencies of your choice; b) in instances where there is imminent danger of serious harm to yourself or others, a counselor may reveal that information to prevent harm; c) in cases involving physical and/or sexual abuse of children or endangered adults, the counselor must report such abuse; and d) where requested by subpoena or mandated by court order or state/federal law.
