The Wellness Center provides integrated health services guided by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration. https://www.samhsa.gov/.

The Wellness Center, Student Counseling and Resource Center, and the Chaplain’s Office are housed in Evans Commons on the third floor. In the Wellness Center, BJC Student Health Center serves on-campus students and full-time undergraduate students for a variety of medical conditions, from illnesses and injuries to physical examinations, well woman examinations, STD testing/HIV testing, birth control counseling, minor procedures, anxiety and depression consultations and immunizations. The clinic has an on-site nurse practitioner to confidentially assist students with their healthcare needs. Walk-ins are welcome, but students with appointments take first priority.

The mission of The Student Counseling and Resource Center at Lindenwood University is dedicated to helping students at Lindenwood University achieve the kinds of academic success, personal growth, and balance that lead to rich, full, and healthy lives. We approach wellness, mental, physical, and spiritual health through a multidisciplinary approach of social justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion for all students. The vision of the SCRC is to promote better health outcomes, and raise awareness for promoting the 8 dimensions of wellness, the mission of the SCRC, and the mission of Lindenwood University. The SCRC is housed in Evans Commons on the third floor. Practicum and intern students also assist in meeting the demands of the SCRC. The SCRC offers confidential counseling and referrals for resources on and off campus that assist students in meeting SAMHSA’s eight dimensions of wellness. The SCRC offers group counseling on various topics. Additionally, the SCRC partners with multiple campus organizations, offices, faculty, and staff for referrals and collaboration of workshops to educate students, faculty, and staff about wellness. Appointments for the SCRC can be made directly at 636-949-4522.

The job of Lindenwood University’s Chaplain is to respond to the needs of our community, to those of various faith traditions or no tradition, who are asking the “big questions,” and to help them find answers.

Lindenwood University provides an ecumenical environment that welcomes and supports all religious traditions. Students may access our Sacred Space, for daily prayers and meditation, located in Spellmann Center room 4150. Sibley Chapel hosts regular non-denominational Christian religious services.
