Counseling support/choosing Social Work

When Chastity McCourt started at Missouri Western she had some personal trials that challenged her and made college difficult. Then, one February her mother passed away. “It was the hardest thing I’d ever had to do – making medial and then burial decisions when I had no income, no support.” With nowhere to turn, she reached out to our on-campus Counseling Center. They supported her in a time when she thought she had no support. “It was at that time I decided social work is where my heart is. I want people to know about the resources and supportive people out there.”
