The JMU Counseling and Student Development Center (CSDC) provides the highest quality individual and group counseling to JMU students struggling with problems common to a college population, and it serves as an assessment and referral source for students with more serious and chronic psychological difficulties. The CSDC also engages in active outreach efforts that focus on the prevention of problems and that maximize the potential of all students to benefit from the academic environment and experience.
What are the top 10 concerns of JMU students? The CSDC staff can help.
