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.

Support for Haitian Community Members

University Health Services like to acknowledge and support our Haitian students, faculty, staff, and community members impacted by the continuous distress and trauma experienced recently and in the past. It is important to give name to the cumulative impact of cultural, political, and physical traumas the Haitian diaspora has experienced in swift succession (i.e. political assassinations, earthquakes, and images of border crisis). These recent events remind us of the continuous work of support, education, and healing needed in our community. University Health Services is committed to offering support to Black students, faculty, staff, and student organizations in efforts to dismantle the many ways antiblackness transpires domestically and globally.

If you are in distress, please know that we are here to help. Students are welcome to utilize Counseling Services and/or the After-hours Support Line by calling 541-346-3227.

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.

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.
