Mental Health & Counseling

Students should be very realistic about their abilities to function in the high-stress environment that characterizes study abroad.  Jordan can be a difficult place to live at times, and certain mental and physical health conditions can be exacerbated by being abroad in general. Psychological counseling services are available in Jordan and the program staff can suggest counselors that past students have recommended. Students with particular concerns in this area are encouraged to consult with staff at Middlebury prior to departure.
