All BMMB students should use the Student Health Center for medical needs. However, sometimes students need additional support beyond physical health services. Penn State provides many additional wellness and mental health services that are covered under the Penn State Student Health Insurance Plan, free, or with minimal costs to support student wellness and mental health.
Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS)
CAPS can help students resolve personal concerns that may interfere with their academic progress, social development, and satisfaction at Penn State. Some of the more common concerns include difficulty with friends, roommates, or family members; depression and anxiety; sexual identity; lack of motivation or difficulty relaxing, concentrating, or studying; eating disorders; sexual assault and sexual abuse recovery; and uncertainties about personal values and beliefs.
