Information for Parents

The Center for Wellness and Disability Services is staffed by professionally trained counselors. All students have access to our free and confidential services.

If you are concerned, refer your student to The Center for Wellness or contact our office so that a staff member may reach out. Counseling appointments must be set up by a willing student. The Center for Wellness does not allow parents to schedule appointments for students. Our staff is available to help with questions or concerns about your student, but confidentiality is strictly maintained.

If you feel your student is in an emergency or crisis situation, please contact The Center for Wellness and Disability Services immediately. During non-business hours, contact Wentworth Public Safety at (617) 989-4444 or call 911.
