Response to Events in Afghanistan

University Health Services would like to acknowledge and support our students that are concerned about the recent events unfolding in Afghanistan, including those with loved ones here and abroad. We also recognize the effect these events may have on our student veterans, given their sacrifice and service in the Middle East. UHS is committed to supporting your health and well-being. Please know we are here to help. We welcome you to contact Counseling Services at 541-346-3227 to schedule an appointment, or check-in to consult with a CS staff member at Let’s Talk.

Current Programs and Services

We are committed to ensuring that students are cared for during this time of uncertainty. University Counseling Services (UCS) has successfully transitioned most of our services to an online/teletherapy format. For the health of all Ducks, counseling services are by appointment only. We do offer same-day appointment scheduling.

How to schedule an appointment:
If you are interested in speaking with one of our therapists, whether for one-time support or to learn more about our service options, call us to schedule a same-day clinical consult at 541-346-3227.

Also, University Counseling Services has partnered with Christie Campus Health to expand mental health services provided to students internationally and in all 50 states. Students can call these numbers 24/7 to access services:

  • Students within the United States and outside of Oregon: 855-558-2011
  • Students outside of the United States: +44 20 8987-6588
    Depending on your phone plan you may incur an international call charge. To limit charges, please dial this number directly, share your contact details, and ask the counselor to call you back.

Support During a Pandemic of Racism

Many of us are experiencing a range of emotions with the recent and ongoing racial injustices and violence toward Black people, AAPI people, and other people of color. We know this is taking a psychological toll on us as individuals and as a community. Please reach out if you need support. We stand with you.

Also, the Counseling Services staff wants to explicitly and unequivocally express our solidarity and support of our Black students, colleagues, and community members on campus, in Eugene/Springfield, and across the globe. Black lives matter. It is important to say this and name this as a recognition of the historical and systemic oppression and loss of life experienced by our Black community. The low number of Black community members within the state of Oregon reflects the severe, negative, and long-term impacts of violent and racist practices. There is no denying history. There is no forgetting of lives lost. We are here to be part of the change. We are here as a community. We are here as Ducks. If one of us is hurting, all of us are hurting.

We are here to support you through the challenges and celebrate your successes.
