At Holy Family, our obligation is not only to educate students in the classroom but also to support them holistically on their journeys.
As mental health and wellness have become front and center for students nationwide, Holy Family has increased resources to support its students’ needs.
The University’s Counseling Services experienced an increase of nearly 75 percent more students seeking counseling in the 2021-22 academic year than the previous year, representing more than a 140 percent increase in counseling sessions. A significant number of students reported experiencing a high-risk level of mental health distress. To address the growing need for care, Counseling Services increased the number
of counselor interns/externs and incorporated new online programs to meet the demand and to provide students with a range of coping strategies designed to manage levels of risk.
