In conjunction with Screening for Mental Health, Messiah College offers a free, confidential Online Screening for Mental Health for depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder,alcohol abuse, eating disorders and post-traumatic stress disorder. The screening tool takes only a few minutes to complete and can help you decide if you might benefit from meeting with one of our counselors or another mental health professional.


Requesting an appointment with a counselor can be done either in person or online:

  • To schedule in person just stop by the Engle Center and speak with our receptionist, or
  • Request counseling online from the privacy of your room or any on-campus computer.  Go to WCMenu.aspx and click on the Counseling Intake button and complete the information requested. All information is kept strictly confidential.

After we review your information we will contact you to set up an appointment with the counselor who is best suited to meet with you for your initial appointment.
