Mission: The mission of the BGSU Counseling Center is to meet the mental health needs and promote mental health wellness of BGSU students. Through the supportive environment at the center, students are provided with multiculturally competent care to address psychosocial stressors that may negatively impact their mental health well-being and increase the likelihood that they will retain as students at the university and reach their academic and career goals. 

Vision: The vision of the BGSU Counseling Center is to be the mental health nexus on campus and get students connected to the best mental health resource for them. We strive to continuously put students first and provide multiculturally informed competent care, outreach to students who may not normally seek out our services and create innovative programming to meet their needs.
