We would like our students and their parents to know that we do everything within our power to maintain the health and safety of our campus, located in Beverly, Massachusetts. While everyone at Montserrat is committed to the good health and safety of our community, there are a few specific offices listed below that can provide wonderful assistance to our students.
In addition, we are happy to provide local and national health and safety resources available to our students through our on campus offices and on our website. We do everything we can to ensure that students with questions about drug and alcohol use, physical and emotional abuse, rape and sexual assault, and general physical, mental and emotional wellness can find the answers they need. Our professional psychologist is available for on campus counseling.
CAMPUS WELLNESS SERVICES
Adjusting to college life is a process. When you need someone to talk to, a professional and caring counseling psychologist is available, part-time, on campus for free and confidential conversation. No problem is too big or too small. You may also request referrals for additional counseling, often covered by health insurance.

Everyone catches a cold or feels under the weather. When you are looking for help with a cold, need a medical referral or just someone to talk to about your health concerns, you should check out the Health Center. The nurse can also help you to navigate insurance when needing a referral.
