Student Counseling Services
As a student at Saint Luke’s College you have access to the Saint Luke’s Health System Student Assistance Program. This program offers students short term counseling services. The number of visits is typically based on recommendations by your health provider after the initial visit. Generally 70 percent of all employees/family members seen in the Saint Luke’s College SAP receive all the counseling they need during these visits. Additionally, all College students are required to demonstrate evidence of personal health insurance; therefore your personal policy may assist in additional coverage of counseling services, or medication, if needed. The Student Assistant Program counselors are licensed, masters or doctoral level psychologists, clinically trained social workers and/or licensed professional counselors.
You may contact Student Assistant Program at the following phone numbers 1-800-327-1223 or 816-931-3073 to arrange a confidential appointment. Other sources available outside of Student Assistant Program include:
