Life University is committed to the personal growth and life satisfaction of our students.

We offer a variety of services and resources for all enrolled students. Our goal is to provide an environment where students can learn valuable life and coping skills to take proactive steps in improving their overall well-being.

SSC Counseling offers a variety of services, which cater to the diverse needs of our students: Life University offers individual and couples counseling through the Student Assistance Program (SAP). SAP provides 24/7 availability of an off-campus counselor via phone. Life University students can request face-to-face visits with an off-campus therapist and will be provided with six free sessions per year. In addition, students have six free coaching sessions available (telephonic), a text option for services as well as a dedicated Life U phone number. With the use of the dedicated phone number, students receive unlimited calls for services and immediate help of a mental health professional. This service allows students consistent availability, including nights, weekends and/or holidays with a licensed mental health professional outside of the University. In addition, the service can be utilized by students’ dependents which include spouses and children. You can contact SAP directly at 866.734.5890, text 94097 and/or request support at (password – lifeu). An SSC Counselor can also assist you in making contact with SAP.

To inquire or take advantage of these resources, students can call the Student Success Center at 770.426.2725 or stop by the office located in the Center for Chiropractic Education (CCE) building. Students will find various community resources and can also speak with a counselor who will help them navigate through the process of connecting to the most valuable resource, whether that is a workshop, relaxation training or connecting to an SAP therapist or other resources within the community.
