Counseling Services provides psychological support and clinical collaboration for Elon University students in the context of short-term, solution-focused therapeutic modalities.
The mission of the Department of Health Promotion is to create a university environment supportive of student mental, physical, and social health and wellbeing. We seek to promote knowledge, understanding, skill-development, resources, and environmental strategies that support protective health behaviors and reduce personal, interpersonal, and community health risk factors.
Elon is committed to the intellectual and personal development of students. Substance misuse inhibits students’ development and is negatively correlated with academic success and personal safety.
The RN Ellington Center for Health & Wellness offers 30 minute therapeutic massage sessions. An increasing number of research studies show massage reduces heart rate, lowers blood pressure, increases blood circulation and lymph flow, relaxes muscles, improves range of motion, and increases endorphins (enhancing medical treatment).
Elon recognizes the serious and negative impact that acts of interpersonal violence, including sexual violence, have on individuals and the University community. Elon does not tolerate acts of interpersonal violence, which includes gender-based violence, sexual violence, relationship violence and stalking. To this end, the University has developed a comprehensive intervention, response and support strategy to address acts of interpersonal violence.
