Counseling and psychosocial
services support the psychological, social and emotional well-being of the
currently enrolled students and staff members who are currently working at the
Applied Sciences Private University. We recognize that university life can be
stressful due to academic, financial, family, and social demands. These
stressors can sometimes contribute to more significant psychological and/or
