Providing Support for All Students

The confidential services at the Counseling Center are free to all registered and degree-seeking students. We offer 30-minute mental health assessments, typically within 10 days of your initial request for treatment. Students in crisis will be given a same-day risk assessment to determine how best to proceed.

Following your initial assessment, you may receive additional sessions on a case-by-case basis. After that, we may refer you to a support group at FIT or individual psychotherapy with an outside provider.

We encourage you to reach out to us when concerns are emerging. Problems left untreated or unresolved can become much larger and affect your personal and academic well-being.

In an emergency, call one of these numbers:
