Help And Support For You
We provide a variety of services including individual and group therapy, crisis support, consultation, and community referrals. We strive to make you as comfortable so possible, so we facilitate therapy in many different settings. Groups meet every term to discuss issues that are relevant to them and the student experience at the UO. We also offer individual therapy and can connect you with therapists in the local community. Above all, we are here to support you and facilitate a positive college experience.
Crisis Support and Response
We are here to help when you are in a mental-health related crisis or our community experiences tragedy. During some of the most difficult times for our community we work to provide the support you need. Everyone experiences these moments differently and has different needs. Whatever you need, we have support and resources for you.
All of our clinical services begin with a brief phone assessment. During the assessment a therapist will ask you questions and help you decide on next steps. Each type of therapy offers its own benefits and some may be better suited to help address your concerns than others. Next steps could include group therapy, individual therapy, getting support in the community, or another type of support. The phone assessment allows us to work together to find the best support for you.
Each individual is unique and has diverse needs. We make sure that you are matched with a staff member that will fit best with your needs and concerns. Individual therapy is great for anyone looking to take a deeper look at their current circumstances or an issue of concern. Our staff are knowledgeable about a variety of topics and are here to support you.
Support from Peer Perspectives
Talking about our challenges and personal concerns can be difficult. Fear of judgment or anxiety can leave us paralyzed. But finding support in others can be powerful. Our group therapy sessions work to create an environment without judgment and fear to discuss issues concerning mental health and wellness. Each group works together to support each other and build strong relationships. Life can be difficult to navigate; find support in the people that surround you.
Support in the Community
Sometimes community therapists or clinics may better suit your needs for long-term treatment or specific forms of treatment the Counseling Center does not offer. If this is the case, Counseling Center staff will work closely with you to find the best match based on your needs, insurance, and location. Contact the Counseling Center for help with community referrals.
