NNU Counseling Services

Counseling services provided at NNU are free, client-centered, short-term, focused treatment. Because we use the walk-in model, there is a variety of scheduling and counseling options.

NNU faculty, staff and students may complete an Early Alert form in order to let the Wellness Center staff know about concerns regarding a student.


If you are experiencing a Mental Health emergency or crisis call 911 or go directly to the nearest Emergency Room.

Students can call 208.467.8466, email wellnesscenter@nnu.edu to schedule appointments or even just walk in and talk with McKenna to schedule.

Our hours are Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. (We are closed for lunch from 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. and Wednesdays for community chapel at 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.)

The Wellness Center is located beside the Alumni House at 518 E. Dewey Ave.

About Us

We provide free confidential counseling services for NNU undergraduate students. Students can walk in or schedule the initial session with a counselor lasting 20-30 minutes. That session may provide the assistance the student needs on the spot. The student can then choose to schedule another walk-in appointment or a longer session which is about 45 minutes. In order to provide students with counseling as needed, we do not schedule recurring appointments.

Since the Wellness Center is a training center with licensed counselors, we may also have interns and practicum students. All trainees are supervised and discuss their sessions with our Clinical Supervisor. The intention of this supervision is to provide the highest quality care. Students have the choice of which counselor they see and are free to discontinue services at any time.

In addition to counseling for undergraduate students, NNU Counseling Services provides consultations, referrals and trainings for NNU staff, faculty and graduate students.

We also oversee the Peer Mentor program which is a variety of students who provide peer support for first-year undergraduate students. They are trained in confidentiality, making appropriate referrals, being good listeners and reaching out to others. Each wing in the freshman resident halls is assigned a peer mentor to partner with the Resident Assistant (RA) on that wing.


If you are experiencing a medical emergency, please call 911 or go directly to the nearest Emergency Room.

Health Records and Immunization Policy

Health Services is dedicated to a healthy campus environment; current health information and immunizations are a vital part of that goal. An Immunization Record and Document of Informed Choice are required of all students.

NNU community members enjoy the privilege of living together in a vibrant communal environment. In such an environment, immunizations are one of the best ways to protect community members from getting and spreading diseases that can, and at times do, result in serious illness, disability and/or death. The diseases that vaccines can protect against are still active and can spread quickly in communal living environments such as ours. Therefore, it is highly recommended that NNU community members discuss vaccines and the potential for contracting any of these diseases with their health care providers and take appropriate action to mitigate that risk.
