Personal Counseling Center

Individually and collectively, the Ferris State University Personal Counseling Center stands in solidarity and support of condemning the attacks on the sixth of January on the United States Capitol, the U.S. Senators, the U.S. Representatives, and the Capitol police. We condemn violence of any kind whether perpetrated by one political group or another. We want a world where people feel safe and respected and where love and compassion are what drive our actions.  We aim to be an ambassador of healing, truth, and justice. We must all work together to help create a society that is safe and united for peace. 

 The staff of the Personal Counseling Center are here to help you process feelings regarding this past year that may be impacting you personally and academically.  To schedule an appointment with one of our counselors, please call the office at 231-591-5968 or email [email protected].
