Resources

Help and Support

Need help? James Madison College and MSU has several resources for you. You can always ask any faculty or staff member for help.

Mental Health  

College is a time of increasing independence, but sometimes that can be a challenge. As Spartans you have access to a wide range of resources across campus and in the greater community that can help you to meet both personal and academic challenges.  If you’re ever in need of assistance, please take the time to use these resources. If you have questions or concerns about classes or if you need help finding resources or assistance, seek out the assistance of your Madison professors and your academic advisors.

CAPS Connect (available 24/7) 

MSU Counseling Center


Any student registered for one or more credits is eligible for an initial consultation.  Help is offered for student concerns in a number of areas including depression, anxiety, substance abuse, stress management, family or other relationships, career decision-making, cultural identity, lesbian/bi/gay/transgender issues, interpersonal concerns, sexual assault, and couples issues. As resources permit, services and/or referrals may be provided such as brief, short-term counseling, group therapy, mental wellness workshops, national and placement testing services, psychiatric treatment and psychological assessment for ADHD and/or learning disabilities.  

Sexual Assault

James Madison College is committed to supporting students and to building a community free of relationship violence and sexual misconduct. Any member of the faculty or staff can refer you to the MSU Center for Survivors where you can receive confidential, professional support. However, you should also know that, while faculty and staff are available to help, we are all mandatory reporters which means that we are legally required to report instances of sexual assault or sexual harassment that involve MSU students, faculty or staff. This report would include your name and all the information that you share with us. Once this report is filed, you would be contacted by staff at MSU’s Title IX office. It is almost always your decision whether to move forward with an investigation. If you don’t want to move forward with an investigation, the report will remain on file in case you want to pursue an investigation at a later date.

Undocumented Students

Michigan State University welcomes and supports students without regard to their immigration status. Undocumented.msu.edu reflects our commitment to MSU students, faculty and staff and provides information that may be useful to current and prospective students and their families, as well as other members of the campus community.

Local Community Counselor

James Madison has a dedicated counselor on staff, available for drop in counseling on Tuesdays in room S363 from 1:30pm to 3:00pm. You can see Courtney Brown's profile or look for other available resources here.
