Mental health and counseling support: MIAD students can contact for assistance with non-clinical mental health or counseling support if they are feeling upset, overwhelmed or stressed or if they are struggling balancing school with work, personal issues or medical situations. 

Marquette University Counseling Center: MIAD partners with Marquette University to provide MIAD students free, confidential short-term counseling with a licensed professional, as well as with a new online mental health tool called SilverCloud.
