  • Counseling Services
    Law students may receive counseling through the Center for Health and Wellness. 

    • Appointments can be arranged by contacting the Center for Health and Wellness at 614-236-6114 or chw@capital.edu. Once established with an OSUWMC provider, patients will have access to MyChart, an online portal to manage their health care and communicate with their provider. All OSUWMC records are protected by HIPAA. 
    • For an after-hour crisis (5 p.m. to 8:30 a.m.), please contact the Center for Health and Wellness at 614-236-6114 and you will be connected with an on-call counselor.   
    • If you are on campus and need immediate medical or behavioral health treatment, please call Public Safety at 614-236-6666. 
    • If you are off-campus and need immediate medical or behavioral health treatment, please call 9-1-1 or go directly to a local hospital emergency room.  

    Finally, if you have any questions or concerns, or should you need additional information about these resources, please contact Assistant Dean of Student Affairs Marcelius Braxton at mbraxton4@law.capital.edu.

    A Note About Confidentiality
    Information you discuss in counseling sessions is confidential and will not be shared with anyone outside of the CHW without your written permission. There are some legal and ethical exceptions to confidentiality: (1) when disclosure is necessary to protect against a clear and substantial risk of imminent serious harm being inflicted by the client on him/herself or on another person. (2) When disclosure is compelled by a court or (3) when the client is a minor. We adhere to professional, legal, and ethical guidelines established by professional organizations and state and federal law. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact a member of our counseling staff.
