Student Counseling Center
Updates About Our Services
March 25, 2020: During the Texas Tech University Coronavirus response, the Student Counseling Center is available by phone from 8:00-5:00 Monday-Friday for students/parents to receive information on establishing on-line services.
In-person counseling services are not available at this time. Current clients should be in contact with their therapist to discuss treatment options. Students residing in Texas who would like to initiate on-line services with the SCC, please call the Student Counseling Center (806-742-3674; M-F 8:00-5:00) for further information. The Texas Tech Crisis HelpLine (806-742-5555) remains available 24/7 for any student in immediate mental health crisis.
The university experience can be a time of substantial growth for students, filled with changes, challenges, and new decisions. It is not uncommon for students to experience periods of trauma, crisis, stress, or confusion. The Student Counseling Center offers a safe community of mental health care to help Texas Tech students navigate life challenges, resolve psychological distress, and develop a life-long orientation toward resilience and mental wellness.

Additional Updates About Our Services
In your initial triage session, your counselor will discuss recommended treatment options which are immediately available to you. If your counselor recommends individual or couples counseling, those services may entail up to a 6-week wait to be assigned to a counselor at the busiest times of the year. However, we make every effort to serve students in severe distress as quickly as possible. We also offer referral services through our case manager, Bobbi Britton-Stroud, if you need assistance in locating a community therapist.
Effective 10/1/17, a Missed Appointment Fee will be applied to clients' Student Business Services accounts following no-showed individual or couples counseling appointments. In order to avoid this charge, clients must contact the Student Counseling Center prior to the scheduled appointment times to cancel or reschedule appointments which they cannot keep. Appointment text reminders are a courtesy and may not be sent for every appointment. SCC clients are responsible for knowing their appointment times, regardless of whether they receive text reminders.
