Hamel Health and Counseling Center


We always welcome hearing from faculty, staff, fellow students, or parents with worries or concerns about a Merrimack student. We are able to speak with you about your concerns, discuss resources, and together formulate a plan about how to best help a student in distress.

Please note that all Hamel staff members are bound by ethical principles and legal mandates of both their area of specialty and Massachusetts law. Thus, except in cases involving a life-threatening emergency, Hamel Health and Counseling staff are not able to share any protected information about a student (over 18 years of age) without their consent and expressly written permission. 

Merrimack faculty and staff are also able to direct concern for any Merrimack student to the campus CARE Committee. A private CARE Report can be filed (known or anonymously) for review and follow-up.
