Help And Support For You
We provide a variety of mental health services to UO students and the campus community.
Spring Term Updates
In response to Governor Kate Brown's March 23 Executive Order ("Stay Home, Save Lives"), the University Counseling Center is adapting some of our services to adhere to physical distancing recommendations. We will be updating our website regularly with new information on changes to our operations so check back often, or call our office at 541-346-3227.
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 unique needs. Whatever you need, we have support and resources for you.
Dropping in to the Counseling Center is the best way to get connected to support. The aim of the drop-in session is to address the concerns you have in the moment. Therapists will listen and provide support, but can also equip students with coping strategies. Therapists will also work with students to come up with a plan for next steps that meet the needs of each individual student. You are welcome to drop-in once or come back in as needed. Drop-in sessions are also a great way to get connected to other campus and community services and resources.
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.
