Student Counseling Service

First step

Counselors recommend that you complete the Counseling Center Assessment of Psychological Symptoms screening tool.

This gives you a snapshot of your areas of concern. It is private and confidential. The snapshot is helpful when you use it to choose services on campus.

Using the screening tool and the information in "Navigating services on campus," you should match your areas of concern with treatment recommendations, and pick the best resources.

For a complete picture of all services, see The counseling process.
