Supporting UO Students

The University of Oregon is open for in-person classes and events, ​and we are here to help you. Students needing support are encouraged to reach out to their advisor, dean of students office, ​or other members of support staff on campus.

Current Programs and Services

Counseling Services currently offers most of our services virtually (on Zoom). If a student cannot find a secure and private location for a virtual appointment, we can offer private space at Counseling Services. Clinical services are by appointment only, scheduled either same day or within a week. We offer a range of short-term therapy services, including single-session intervention, consultation, wellness workshops, group therapy, and short-term focused individual therapy (one to six sessions per academic year).

How to schedule an appointment:
If you are interested in speaking with one of our therapists, for support or to learn more about our services, call to schedule a clinical consultation at 541-346-3227.

Also, Counseling Services has partnered with Christie Campus Health to expand mental health services provided to students with out-of-state and international permanent addresses. Students can call these numbers 24/7 to access services:

  • Students within the United States: 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.

Here Whenever You Need Us

Your college experience is one of growth and learning. We all face a variety of challenges and obstacles in college and in life. You may come across moments that are not easy to talk about—struggling academically, navigating personal relationships, what it's like to live with mental health concerns. It can seem like you are the only one dealing with these issues, but you are not alone. We have a team that cares deeply about your development and success. We are here to support you through the challenges and celebrate your successes.

 

Getting support is different for everyone. It could be talking one-on-one or attending a workshop. We are here to help you identify strategies that work best for you.

October 14–December 9

Meet with a Counseling Services staff member for Let’s Talk on Thursdays 4-6PM. Let’s Talk is a service that provides easy access to free, informal, and confidential one-on-one consultation with a University Counseling Services staff member. See our website for six additional Let’s Talk days/times offered throughout the week.

Let’s Talk is especially helpful for students who:


Have a specific concern and would like to consult with someone about it.
Would like on-the-spot consultation rather than ongoing counseling.
Would like to consult with a UCS staff member about what actual therapy looks like.
Would like to meet with one of our UCS identity-based specialists.
Have a concern about a friend or family member and would like some ideas about what to do.


How does Let’s (Tele)Talk work?

While typically offered in various campus locations, Let’s (Tele)Talk will be offered via Zoom. As a drop-in service, there is no need to schedule an appointment and no paperwork to be completed. Students are seen individually on a first-come, first-served basis at the times listed below. There may be a wait in the Zoom waiting room if the Let’s (Tele)Talk staff member is meeting with another student. Please wait and we will be with you as soon as we can. Let’s Talk appointments are brief (usually between 15-30 minutes) and are meant to be used on an as-needed basis.
