The College of Pharmacy has been recognized across the university for its culture of wellness for faculty, staff, and students.

A variety of activities and events are available to help enhance and promote the nine dimensions of health: emotional, career, social, spiritual, physical, financial, intellectual, creative, and environmental wellness. The college also has a dedicated team comprised of Wellness Innovators (faculty and staff) and Wellness Ambassadors (students) who meet to plan and implement healthy activities.

Student Counseling Services

Embedded COP Counselor
All College of Pharmacy students may contact embedded counselor Dr. Shawn Levstek at levstek.4@osu.edu. He will offer you an initial counseling session via Zoom to initiate services. During this meeting, he will address your current concerns and mental health needs in addition to collecting background information and assessing your history of concerns. He will also discuss future treatment options with you and can connect you with other resources as well, where appropriate. If any students have questions or concerns, please email Dr. Levstek directly.

Counseling and Counseling and Consultation Service (CCS)
Additionally, Counseling and Consultation Service (CCS) has developed resources for students that can be accessed remotely, including strategies for dealing with anxiety and stress related to COVID-19, which can be found here. You also may visit ccs.osu.edu anytime for more information regarding any of the services offered by CCS.
