Thirst, drink, and live well.

The Well

The Well exists to provide a place where CU students can have safe, confidential conversations with counselors who are equipped to provide encouragement and help when life gets stressful, confusing or messy. Life can get overwhelming and what is important to you is important to us.

Why Students Come In

Students choose counseling to problem solve, make healthier choices, build upon their strengths, gain freedom from chronic struggles or realize peace in difficult situations. Specific concerns often include stress, depression, anxiety, relationship struggles, spiritual issues, sexual concerns and confusion, the loss of a loved one, traumatic events, self-harm, suicidal thoughts, drugs and alcohol, pornography, family problems and adjustments to college life – really, anything that might be causing someone to struggle or doubt.
