Our Mission


Student Counseling Services provide quality services to Southern Miss students by promoting sound mental health and the coping skills necessary for successful pursuit of their educational and life goals. As mental health professionals, we work in a spirit of collaboration within the Division of Student Affairs to support individual responsibility, personal growth, and wellness of all members of the student body.


All Student Counseling Services staff strive to respect, affirm, and celebrate the diversity of all individuals. Therefore, discrimination in any form is inconsistent with our mission and our values. This includes discrimination in the areas of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, physical and mental abilities, age, social economic status, and religious beliefs.
