Counseling Services acknowledges the inherent limitations of providing comprehensive mental health care in a university setting. Students sometimes request or require a level of care that extends beyond the Scope of Clinical Care of our campus-based mental health services. We offer care coordination support to help students to identify and access the care they need. Students may request a Care Coordination appointment with our Referral Coordinator for assistance in finding an off-campus provider.
The following are databases that can also assist you in identifying off-campus providers and resources:
- MiResource Database, can help match students with a range of providers in the local Elon/Burlington and Greensboro communities. To learn more about navigating the mental health care system and the range of available options, you can also visit the MiResources Learning Center.

MindWise Screening for Mental Health Concerns
Seventy-five percent of behavioral health conditions are diagnosed by the age of 24. Initial symptoms often appear during the college years, when exploratory behaviors with substances and alcohol also begin. The college years are an exciting time of personal growth, but they can also bring academic, social, and financial pressures, which can worsen underlying mental health and substance use issues.
By taking a brief MindWise Screening, students can learn if they have a behavioral health issue and learn signs and symptoms. Various screenings are available to explore symptoms of depression and anxiety, alcohol use, disordered eating, and general well-being. Students can take the screening on their phone, a laptop, or tablet – anonymously and from the privacy of their own dorm room.
