There are service limitations obligated by our role in the College and the resources to fulfill that role.
Our counseling services are available to current UCC students experiencing difficulities that may be impacting their academic lives.
Brief counseling sessions are 1-3 short-term one-hour meetings that focus on a specific plan of action, identification of community resources and referral for on-going personal counseling needs.
Students' requests for services sometimes exceed the service capacity of our staff. Therefore, it is necessary to limit the length of services available to any one student. During high demand times for service, students may have to wait for a regularly scheduled appointment. Individuals who need more intensive care will be referred to appropriate clinical providers or programs in the community.
Services are available only during regular business hours in fall, winter, and spring terms. We provide very limited services during the summer term.
If you are not on campus or it is after hours, and you need immediate assistance please contact Douglas County Mental Health 24 HOUR CRISIS HELP: 541-440-3532 or 800-866-9780.
Confidentiality within Counseling Services is considered essential for effective service. However, there are some exceptions to confidentiality. By law and professional ethics, the limits to confidentiality may include: harm to self or others; abuse of a minor, elder, or disabled person; court orders; or professional consultation. Counselors will review this with students.
