The UM Counseling Center provides short-term, time limited individual, couples, and group counseling, coordination of care services, and psycho-educational outreach programming and consultation. Emergency services and limited career and psychological testing are also available. Psychiatric services are available to those under the care of a UM Counseling Center counselor.
The UM Counseling Center staff consists of experienced professionals from the fields of mental health counseling, psychology, social work, and psychiatry. The Counseling Center is also a training site accredited by the American Psychological Association for doctoral interns in professional psychology.
UM Counseling Center records are confidential and are separate from other university records. The privacy of communication between clients and mental health professionals is protected by law. Information about students or their treatment cannot be disclosed to others without their written consent, except for cases of imminent danger to themself or others, reports of child/elder/disabled abuse, or a court order.
