Due to UMHB’s decision to shift to a online learning model for the remainder of the Spring 2020 semester, Counseling Services will be shifting our service model. At this time, Counseling Services is available for teletherapy.
Students are invited to contact Counseling Services at 254-295-4696 during business hours (8:00 a.m.- 5:00 p.m.) or email email@example.com if you would like to schedule a time to speak to a counselor.
For new clients, you will be scheduled for an initial video call with a counselor and asked to complete intake paperwork online prior to your appointment. For clients who have been seen this academic year, you will be scheduled for a half hour video call with a counselor that same day if possible, or if the counselors’ schedules are already full for that day, you will be scheduled for an appointment within the next few days. You will receive an email with instructions about how to complete an informed consent online that provides information about teletherapy.
Clinical counseling services are available only to currently enrolled UMHB students who find themselves in need of assistance with a wide variety of difficulties ranging from decision-making to personal awareness and understanding. Counseling services are offered on a short-term basis by appointment only. When appropriate, referrals are made to mental health providers in the local area. Students can be assured they are receiving top-quality, professional counseling in a completely confidential setting.
