Behavioral Health Services
Social workers offer people support when they are going through difficult times, such as family troubles or problems in school. The social workers at Loyola's School-Based Health Center can help students sort out their feelings, find solutions to their problems, and just feel better.
If you want to talk to a social worker, just stop by the health center in Rm. 86B and make an appointment. If you are really feeling upset, you can often be seen right away. Students can visit a social worker at the health center for up to eight appointments without a parental consent form on file. As a health center patient, what you talk about in your visit is confidential.
