How We Can Help

SHS, UCC, and CADE have moved to the Marvin Center, Ground Floor at 800 21st Street Northwest.

We are the primary mental health agency for GW students and the rest of the campus community. We support mental health and personal development by collaborating with students to overcome challenges and difficulties that may interfere with academic, emotional, and personal well-being. Our professional counselors provide a safe and non-judgmental environment for students to discuss concerns.
