Juniata College Health and Wellness Center

Wellness is important at Juniata. Students are encouraged to optimize their physical and emotional health. Although prevention is the primary focus of the Health & Wellness Center, intervention is also provided through the following services:

Medical Services:

The center is staffed by a nurse and administrative assistant Monday thru Friday and visiting physicians on Wednesdays from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Mondays from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. Treatment is provided for minor injuries and ailments and routine care of chronic illnesses for full-time students. A health fee is assessed each semester for medical and counseling services. The fee is for services and is not a supplemental form of health insurance. For comprehensive and specialized care, students are referred to the local hospital or to other medical facilities in the area. All full-time Juniata students are required to provide proof of insurance. If proof is not provided, full-time students will be charged a premium and enrolled in a student accident insurance program.

For additional information, please visit the Health and Wellness Center site at http://www.juniata.edu/services/health

Counseling Services:

The Health & Wellness Center also provides personal counseling for all students. Each student may receive up to ten sessions of counseling per year free of charge. These services are provided by master’s level therapists who are supervised by the center’s consulting psychiatrist. All services are confidential and are not included on the student record. Counseling services also include assessments, screenings, prevention programming, appropriate referrals, workshops/presentations, support groups, drug and alcohol education programs, and when appropriate, referral to the center’s consulting psychiatrist.
