Located on the lower level of Blakely House near the center of campus, services are readily available to Mary Baldwin University students for routine care and acute care. After hours care is provided by Augusta Health — at the urgent care center or through the Emergency Room at the Augusta Health Hospital.

We provide a wide variety of services, including:

  • Stress management

If a student requires more than four sessions, she should discuss payment for services (insurance and Medicaid accepted), or discuss referral alternatives (community services which offer a sliding scale; unlimited free of charge group therapy session, etc.).
