Is Counseling Right for Me?

Sadness, anxiety, anger, depression, grief, frustration, confusion, guilt, helplessness and other common emotions are all feelings that we have or will have to face at some point in our lives. In many cases, these experiences are temporary, and you will recover without needing additional help or support. Sometimes, these life struggles may be more severe or prolonged.

If you need a safe place to talk and get support, Counseling and Psychological Services is here to help. If you need support to problem solve or you just find yourself feeling overwhelmed but not sure what to do, we are here to support you in any way we can.

We Help Students With:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Alcohol and drug concerns
  • Stress
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Attention difficulties
  • Eating/body image concerns
  • Grief and trauma
  • Homesickness
  • Diversity concerns
  • Social justice issues
  • Test anxiety
  • Communication deficits and other personal concerns

Making Your First Appointment

If you’d like to meet with a Counseling and Psychological Services therapist, call 402.472.5000 or visit the University Health Center (1500 U St.) and request an initial screening appointment. This appointment will either be scheduled that day or within 48 hours. All students can be seen the same day if you are in crisis. Let the front desk know if you are in crisis.

During your initial appointment, a therapist will spend 20 to 30 minutes with you to gather information, assess your situation and help you determine the best next steps for your concerns..
