Counseling Services offers confidential, professional mental health services provided by staff psychologists, social workers, counselors and psychiatrists to help meet the personal and developmental needs of currently enrolled students. Counseling Services has offices at both the Downtown and Main campuses. Most services are free and all services are confidential. Counseling Services is accredited by The International Association of Counseling Services (IACS).
The transitions and stressors of university life affect all students to different degrees. Students coping with these challenging issues may, at times, need the assistance of qualified professionals. The counseling process helps students resolve personal concerns and acquire the skills, knowledge, and abilities that will enable them to succeed throughout their college experience. Additionally, Counseling Services staff members provide consultation services to faculty and staff who may need support or training in approaching students with mental health concerns.
Counseling Services provides group therapy for interpersonal relationship concerns, sexual and gender diversity, skills building and general support as well as brief individual therapy for personal and educational concerns. Counseling Services also offers screenings for possible learning disabilities (for a nominal fee), biofeedback training and services, “The Oasis” relaxation room, limited psychiatric and couples counseling services, and online wellness modules.

Clinic staff will assess students by phone and will make recommendations for appropriate services as clinically indicated. A crisis helpline is available after-hours, weekends and holidays by calling 210-458-4140, and selecting option 3.
