Forrest Seymour

Assistant Director for Emotional Health Programming & Outreach

Thank you for your article, “All is well at Elliot,” in the September 12th edition of the Equinox.  The Wellness Center staff are very excited about all the improvements and growth in how we support our students’ physical and emotional health.

Here are a few important updates and clarifications to your article:

As a single department, The Wellness Center provides students support in the following three areas: 1) Health Services, 2) Counseling Services, and 3) Wellness Promotion

The Wellness Center’s Health & Counseling staff includes counselors, medical professionals, and administrative staff.

The Wellness Center’s Health Services is an acute care medical clinic that includes services for students such as acute illness/acute injury care, sexual and reproductive health care, transgender care, laboratory testing, prescription services, mental health medication evaluation, and physician and psychiatric provider consultations.

New this fall, students can self-schedule their Health Services appointments through the Patient Portal at www.keene.edu/chw. If you are unsure if you need an appointment or have medical questions or concerns, call to speak directly to a nurse 603-358-2450 option 1.

Appointments with Counseling Services can be made by calling 603-358-2437 or stopping by The Wellness Center on the 3rd floor of Elliot.

Appointments with Health Services or Counseling Services cannot be made via email as it is not a secure medium and confidentiality cannot be guaranteed.
