Supporting Your Student’s Emotional and Mental Health

Transitioning to college is a very exciting time and can be a stressful time, especially when a student struggles with their emotional and mental health. Counselors are available in Canisius College Counseling Center, located in Bosch 105, to help support your student during their transition to college and throughout their college experience. Students can stop by or call to schedule an appointment with a counselor. Students can stop by without an appointment during our Drop-In Hours from 3-4pm daily.
