The Counseling Center is Here to Help
The Counseling and Psychological Services Center offers a variety of free services to students including short-term individual therapy, group therapy, consultation for learning how to help someone you are concerned about, referral services, and assistance for mental health emergencies. We are located on the first floor of the Miles Annas Student Support Building, next to the Student Union.
To get started, come to the Counseling Center for an Initial Consultation. Check-in times are Monday-Friday 8:30-11:00 A.M. and 1:00-4:00 P.M.
Emergencies During the Day
If you are experiencing an emergency during Counseling Center hours of operation (Mon-Fri 8:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M.) come to the Counseling Center and let the receptionist know that this is an emergency and we will have you meet with a counselor as soon as possible. Examples of emergencies are recent suicidal thoughts, recent sexual assault, homicidal thoughts, the death of a friend or loved one, having unusual experiences such as hearing voices or seeing things other people do not, and other similar events.
