Psychological Services offers brief confidential individual counseling, crisis intervention, mental health and substance abuse assessments, and community referrals. The goal of counseling is to support students in identifying and managing personal concerns, learn more about themselves and make positive life changes. Talking about issues and concerns in a safe and confidential environment can enable students to become more successful in college and life.
Drop-in counseling is available without an appointment Monday through Thursday from 12:00pm - 1:00pm. Please check in at the Health Center desk. If drop-in is full for the day, you will be able to schedule an appointment.
Health information and listings of Health Center activities can be found in the Health Center and on bulletin boards located throughout campus.
