The Center for Wellness and Disability Services is comprised of Counseling Services, Disability Services, and Wellness Education. The mission of the Center for Wellness and Disability Services is to provide comprehensive support to all students around mental health, wellness education, and disability support and accommodations.
Counseling Services assists students with their mental health needs so that they may be successful in their academic pursuits. Counseling Services offers a safe, confidential environment where students can share thoughts and feelings: explore issues of concern, and gain awareness and insight into their lives. Services are available to all Wentworth students without charge on a short term basis, depending on individual need.

Disability Services is committed to providing support for students with disabilities so they may participate fully in the life of the community. Students with physical, medical, psychological, and learning disabilities are eligible to utilize Disability Services to arrange for reasonable accommodations, such as testing modifications and tutoring. To receive services, an individual must voluntarily disclose his or her disability, provide documentation as required by the institution, and request specific services. At Wentworth, students with disabilities are fully integrated into the campus community.
The Office of Wellness Education is housed within the Center for Wellness and Disability Services and offers information and consultation to educate the Wentworth community about issues surrounding healthy living. By providing current, objective health and wellness information the office informs healthy and responsible lifestyle choices to enhance personal success and growth. The office works collaboratively with the Wentworth community to create opportunities that promote the physical, emotional, social, academic, occupational and environmental well-being of students. Campus-wide wellness events throughout the year educate students on a variety of health and wellness topics, including alcohol and drug use, sexual assault, eating disorders, stress management, and smoking. Staff is also available to consult with individual students seeking health and wellness resources. The “AlcoholEdu for College” program, which first year students complete prior to orientation, is one of Wentworth’s continuing efforts to educate on the effects of alcohol.
