University Health Services would like to acknowledge and support our students, faculty members, and staff impacted by the recent racially motivated crimes throughout the country. These tragedies reflect a longstanding history of systemic injustice and violence against communities of color across the nation. UHS is committed to supporting the health and well-being of our UO campus community. Please reach out if you need support.

We welcome you to contact Counseling Services at 541-346-3227 to schedule an appointment, or check in to consult with a staff member at Let’s Talk.

As May is Mental Health Awareness Month, we aspire to strengthen our community of care for our campus.

University Health Services encourages you to check out our events for the month and take the Kognito virtual training to learn how to support a student and their mental health.

Current Programs and Services

Counseling Services currently offers a hybrid of in-person and virtual (Zoom) programs and services. If a student cannot find a secure and private location for a virtual appointment, Counseling Services has limited private space at our office. Just call to reserve a “Zoom Room.” Clinical services are by appointment only, scheduled either same day or within a week. We offer a range of short-term individual clinical services, including single-session intervention and short-term focused individual therapy (one to six sessions per academic year), group therapy, case management to assist in finding local mental health resources, consultation, and other mental health workshops.

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.

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.

Let’s Talk is a service that provides easy access to free, informal, and confidential one-on-one consultation with a 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 CS staff member about what actual therapy looks like.
Would like to meet with one of our CS 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 Talk work?

Let’s Talk will be offered via Zoom and/or in satellite locations across campus. 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 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.
