Care and Support or Pastoral Care provides confidential support for emotional and spiritual needs during moments of acute struggle or crisis, regardless of an individual’s faith or non-faith background.  Pastoral care accompanies persons as they reestablish their own sense of well-being and wholeness.

The chaplains and staff of the Center for Religious and Spiritual Life are available to offer spiritual support on a one-on-one basis. We invite you to contact one of the chaplains directly.  For more information contact religiouslife@macalester.edu or 651-696-6298.

Macalester also offers counseling services at the Laurie Hamre Center for Health and Wellness. To speak to a mental health counselor after hours, simply call the Hamre Center for Health & Wellness phone number: (651) 696-6275. Then press “2” and you will be connected to ProtoCall, a free phone counseling service that Macalester provides for students.
