Counseling Center

Tags help

The BYU-Idaho Counseling Center is committed to valuing diversity in all forms. They recognize that discrimination, prejudice, and systemic issues of power and privilege impact the lives of our students. They feel a special obligation as a mental health agency to affirm diversity, condemn oppression in every form, and encourage utilization of their services by all students. All are welcome, respected, and appreciated. Counseling services are confidential and are not part of the student's academic record.
