Health Services and Forms
The Mary F. Harley Student Health and Counseling Center provides qualified staff to assist students in reaching their potential while at Sweet Briar College.
We are competent and caring health care providers who offer basic primary healthcare for acute and chronic conditions. We treat illnesses such as colds, the flu, urinary tract infections, allergies, etc. We have many community health affiliations and relationships and do not hesitate to refer students who may need urgent care or more complex care than can be adequately provided through our services.
Our primary focus is wellness, including women's health exams (e.g. PAP tests) and education about healthy lifestyle choices, nutrition, contraception, smoking cessation, etc.
In addition, we offer immunization clinics for those needing vaccination against influenza or meningitis. We also offer the cervical cancer vaccine, Gardasil, which protects against several strains of HPV.
Counseling services can include individual sessions, group counseling, crisis intervention, psychological testing and/or referrals for specialized needs on an individual basis. Students requiring longer-term counseling may be referred to a local therapist as deemed necessary.
All health and counseling visits are free to students, except for specialized tests, some immunizations and some supplies.
