To get started with treatment, call the Student Counseling Center (SCC) at (806) 742-3674 during business hours, Monday through Friday between 8:00 am and 5:00 pm. The Front Office staff will ask you some preliminary questions and email you a link to complete introductory paperwork, which should take about 30 minutes. After completing the paperwork, the Front Office will contact you with your initial assessment appointment day and time. This appointment may take place via Zoom secure video conferencing or by telephone. During high volume periods, you may experience a wait between completion of the paperwork and the initial assessment appointment. The initial assessment counselor will evaluate your concerns and discuss with you how your needs can best be addressed. We have a variety of services at the SCC including Manage Your Mood skills-building groups, group therapy,Therapy Assistance Online, and Brief Individual or Couples Counseling. The counselor will work with you to find the most helpful fit for your concerns. We also have access to a network of mental health providers both on and off campus, and when appropriate you may be referred to one of these agencies. At the conclusion of your initial session, the counselor will discuss the next steps you can take to start feeling better.

For questions about getting started with services, please call 806-742-3674.
