The Catholic, Jesuit concept of cura personalis, which translates as care of the whole person, suggests individualized attention to the needs of others and distinct respect for unique circumstances and concerns. During these difficult times, MUHS is committed to providing distinctive care to the social-emotional needs of students.
The MUHS Counseling Department, under the leadership of Cathy Azzalino, Counselor, Jennifer Reuchlen, Director of Counseling, and Phil Stollenwerk, Counselor, will provide supportive care and counseling to students. In addition to the work of the counseling staff, faculty advisors will meet with advisees during the weekly scheduled sessions. All advisors have received professional development in trauma-informed care and are sensitive to the unique circumstances MUHS students are experiencing during this pandemic. Parents are encouraged to communicate any concerns regarding their son's mental health to a member of the Counseling team.
The MUHS College Counseling Department will provide guidance and support to students and parents in preparation for and during the college admissions process during this unprecedented time in higher education. Some of the traditional practices in college admissions will shift due to the pandemic. The Director of College Counseling, Annette Cleary, and Associate Director, Connie Bennett, will support students and parents and provide updated and accurate information to relieve some of the anxieties that exist in this process.
