Talk to Us. That's What We're Here For.
Are you feeling more anxious, stressed out, depressed or homesick than usual? Come to the Counseling Services center on your campus and talk to us. Our licensed professional counselors can help you develop the resources and practical strategies to enjoy the social and academic success you deserve.
Free and Confidential
All on-campus counseling services are confidential and free of charge. In certain cases, our staff may make a referral to an outside provider, where fees may apply. Your confidentiality is protected within the boundaries of the client/counselor relationship. Rare exceptions to confidentiality exist only if a counselor has reason to believe there is imminent danger to you or to others.
Sometimes it's hard to tell the difference between a bad mood that will pass on its own and one you'll need help to get out of your way. This free and confidential series of questions only takes a few minutes to help you decide what's the best thing to do.
If you ever feel you or a friend is in crisis; if you're facing or witness an abuse situation, sexual assault, or bias crime, open this app to find help right away. Looking for an online resource?
