Student Health Center Strategic Initiative
Counseling Center Services during reduced operations communication
In order to keep our students and staff safe during this Coronavirus pandemic, we will continue to support our students by providing mental health services via tele therapy only. The Student Health Center will not be open for walk in appointments until further notice.
If you are a current client and would like to continue services via tele therapy, we will send you a Zoom invite the morning of your scheduled appointment and meet via Zoom at your appointment time or we can have a telephone session if preferred. If a telephone session is preferred, we would call you at the time of your scheduled appointment. If you plan to cancel your future appointments, please call and let us know as soon as possible.
In order to engage in services via Zoom, we will need to you complete a consent form that you will be receiving through a portal message in your email.
We will not be scheduling new assessments for the time being. If you are interested in initiating services, we will do a phone session and complete a phone screening to identify your needs and either help you access “single sessions” via tele therapy or we will assist you with a referral to a community resource.
We continue to offer our after-hours crisis support by calling 319-273-2676 and selecting option 2 to speak with a counselor. You can also continue to use the crisis text line by texting “hello” to 741741.
Your safety, mental health, and health remain top priority. Thank you for your patience as we work through our new processes.
