Health and Wellness
Law school will throw many responsibilities your way, and it can be easy for your health and well-being to get lost in the mix. The Office of Law Student Affairs wants students to know that not neglecting their health is just as important as being prepared for class. A number of resources are available for our students should they need assistance.
The Student Counseling Center supports the intellectual, emotional, social and cultural development of students by offering a wide range of services, including personal and group counseling, consultation and educational services.
We value an atmosphere that is welcoming and comfortable for all students, regardless of race, gender, ethnic background, age, sexual orientation, religion, citizenship or disability.
Student Health Center
All currently enrolled students of St. Mary’s University are eligible to receive care at the Student Health Center. Spouses and children of enrolled students, faculty and staff must seek care outside of the Student Health Center.
For those students enrolled in the Student Health Insurance Plan, there is a co-pay per office visit for covered services. Students who have other insurance or have no insurance will be responsible for the cost of the office visit and any additional charges for lab, medications and procedures performed in the clinic. Visit the AHP Care website for more details.
Student Accessibility Services
The Office of Student Accessibility Services supports students in pursuing their educational and career goals by providing access to the educational opportunities, programs, services and activities of the University.
Qualified students with documented disabilities are eligible for services and accommodations through the Office of Student Accessibility Services. Disability-related services and accommodations are determined on a case-by-case basis through an interactive process that includes input and participation by the student and a review of documentation that address the functional limitations of the disability. The Office of Student Accessibility Services staff will assist in the process of obtaining support services.
Texas Lawyers Assistance Program (TLAP)
The Texas Lawyers Assistance Program provides confidential support to law students for problems with stress, anxiety, depression, substance use, and other mental health disorders. TLAP works with all 10 Texas law schools to provide students with wellness programming, education related to character and fitness requirements by BLE, peer and group support, referrals to quality professionals and programs, and connection to financial assistance for needed care.
