Mental Health & Counseling
The Mental Health & Counseling Department is committed to caring for the psychological concerns of undergraduate, graduate, and professional school students. Care is provided by mental health professionals including psychiatrists, clinical psychologists, and clinical social workers.
When you call for an appointment, you will be asked if you are an enrolled student and if you've ever been seen in Mental Health & Counseling before.
An appointment will be made for an initial evaluation within a few days of contacting the department or the same day in an urgent situation. During this session, the clinician will discuss your concerns and treatment options. These include counseling, short-term therapy, group therapy, couples counseling, alcohol and drug counseling, sex counseling and medication when appropriate. Therapy groups usually address a range of issues, but some may have a particular focus such as eating concerns or bereavement.
