Physical and Emotional Support

CMU runs a Student Health Center in Grand Junction. Students on the Montrose campus and their dependents may use the center.  While the health center is sixty miles from Montrose, the fees for services are low enough to make it worth the drive.  Services include physical examinations, diagnosis and treatment of illness, injury treatment and follow-up care, diagnostic laboratory and radiology services, and family planning education and birth control.  The center also offers confidential counseling and behavioral health services.

The co-pay for medical visits and counseling sessions are affordable.  To schedule an appointment call 970.644.3740.  The center is located on 1060 Orchard Avenue, Suite N.

The health center charges additional fees for special medical services such as laboratory tests, medical procedures, and vaccinations.  Ask the health center for a copy of the fee schedule for those services.  For more information about CMU student health services visit:

In past years, the CMU student government, called Associated Students, has allocated funding to enable as many 30-40 CMU Montrose students to use the Community Recreation Center at no charge.  Contact the staff in the Branscome Center on the status of this opportunity.

Close to campus, the Welcome Home Alliance for Veterans provides support services to local veterans, including student veterans.  For more information visit https://www.whafv.org/ , call 970.765.2210 or visit the Resource Center at 4 Hillcrest Plaza Way in Montrose.

Balancing your life with school and other responsibilities can trigger stress, anxiety and even depression.  If you need assistance coping with your situation, CMU Mentor Jesse Scott is on the Montrose campus on a regular basis.
