Office of Student Wellness (OSW)

The ACHE Office of Student Wellness is in the Office of Student Affairs on the first floor of the ARCOM building. We are here to help students thrive during their time here at ACHE. We are available to help students develop and maintain healthy habits for mental and physical wellness. Our services are individualized for each student based on need. We provide crisis intervention, monthly workshops for mental health awareness, brief counseling, and support groups. Campus Security is available 24/7 for physical and mental health emergencies. If you need support, please schedule an appointment by calling Student Services at 479-308-2200 or email Student Services. Appointments are available in person and virtual using a HIPPA approved online platform.


Clinical services are strictly confidential. No information is released without your permission, except in extreme, life-threatening emergencies or when required by law.
