Sweet Briar College

Horizon Behavioral Health is proud to partner with Sweet Briar College to provide a wide variety of mental health services to students throughout the academic semester. Our licensed professional counselors, located on-campus, are available to support you 24/7 so that you can excel in your academic journey. All students have access to mental health care via daily walk-in crisis support and individual counseling.

Each Horizon counselor is highly trained to help you improve your mental wellness through mental health skill-building, setting healthy boundaries, processing trauma, coping with stress, anxiety, depression, or thoughts of suicide. Educational groups can be provided as need to address topics requested by students and have included mindfulness, stress management, regulation skills, and acupuncture detoxification.
