Student Health

Counselor meets with a student discussing the student's needs.

College can be stressful, and the values of "I Am Miami" inspire our students to support one another in times of need.

If you notice someone who seems lonely, withdrawn, or otherwise suffering from unhealthy lifestyle choices, knowing how and when to report your concern can help you respond appropriately and identify who to call for help. Miami offers a variety of services that reflects our commitment to students' physical, mental, and emotional health.
