    • Your first step to success: Keeping well.

      College is demanding and classes can easily consume most of your time. However, your well-being is the singular, most important priority and trying to meet the demands of college is far more difficult when you’re not feeling well.

      The Center for Health and Wellness is here to provide Capital students a full range of medical and mental health services, respectfully serving the diverse needs of our campus community.

      We provide medical and mental health services for all Capital students year-round and promote health and well-being. We offer training for graduate students interested in internships in counseling or social work.


      Updated Counseling Resources at the Center for Health and Wellness

      Two full-time psychotherapists are provided by OSUWMC through our Center for Health and Wellness (CHW). The counselors are able to work with students full time since management of the office is handled through OSUWMC. As the partnership continues, we will monitor student feedback and work with OSUWMC to serve the behavioral health needs of our community. 

      Under the partnership with OSUWM, the CHW now offers:

      • An increased number of appointments for students; 
      • Walk-in morning and afternoon crisis hours, Monday through Friday; 
      • Added educational and preventative behavioral and mental healthcare services; 
      • Better coordination and collaboration with OSUWMC’s behavioral healthcare facilities for additional treatment options; 
      • Access to psychiatric services, if needed; and 
      • An updated website will be available soon. 

      Two new graduate internships have been created to increase access to diverse counselors at the University and, eventually, in the community through Capital’s Clinical and Mental Health Counseling program. We are committed to identifying outstanding students who are members of diverse and underrepresented groups in careers related to the field of mental health to participate in this opportunity.  Training will be provided by a team of independently licensed psychotherapists employed by OSUWMC.  In addition to on-site clinical supervision, there are opportunities for additional mentorship within the OSUWMC Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Health and Harding Hospital.   

      Capital continues to have on-call counselors available 24 hours per day.  

      • Appointments can be arranged by contacting the Center for Health and Wellness at 614-236-6114 or chw@capital.edu. Once established with an OSUWMC provider, patients will have access to MyChart, an online portal to manage their health care and communicate with their provider. All OSUWMC records are protected by HIPAA. 
      • For an after-hour crisis (5 p.m. to 8:30 a.m.), please contact the Center for Health and Wellness at 614-236-6114 and you will be connected with an on-call counselor.   
      • If you are on campus and need immediate medical or behavioral health treatment, please call Public Safety at 614-236-6666. 
      • If you are off-campus and need immediate medical or behavioral health treatment, please call 9-1-1 or go directly to a local hospital emergency room.  

      If you have questions about this partnership, please reach out to Deanna Wagner, dean of Engagement and Success, at dwagner1453@capital.edu.
