Our Campus Ministry Team works closely with many departments on campus as well as off-campus organizations that are here to service you. Please see any of the resources that are available to you for any personal needs you are experiencing.

Counseling Center

We work in collaboration with the Counseling Center which is providing free, short-term, confidential mental health counseling to all actively enrolled students. To help keep us all healthy, they are working by appointment only and providing counseling via telehealth. They will also continue to provide crisis management through virtual walk-ins and referrals to community resources if needed. Consultation and psycho-education to faculty and staff are available virtually as well. Office will be open between the hours of 8:30 am – 4:30 pm Monday-Friday.  

Counselors will be available to support our campus community using a HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) compliant online platform called Zoom HIPAA. Anyone who wants to speak with a counselor should send an email to the counselingcenter@chaminade.edu or call us directly at (808) 735-4845 to arrange for an appointment. This email address is monitored daily.

They also have self-help, wellness, and crisis resources located on our webpage at https://chaminade.edu/student-life/counseling-center/counseling-services/ for staff, faculty, and students to refer to.
