Health and Counseling Services offer medical and mental health services to enrolled Knox College students. It is our belief that physical and mental wellness are important in achieving a well-rounded academic experience. We offer a variety of services throughout the academic year including general medical evaluations, treatment for acute medical problems, reproductive health care, individual, couples and group counseling, and referrals to community resources. All of these services are confidential. Additionally, health and counseling staff sponsor educational programs that empower students to make healthy choices for themselves at Knox and beyond. Health and Counseling Services is part of the Division of Student Development.
