Remote Counseling Center Services
If you experience a mental health emergency, contact 911, your local police, or local hospital emergency room for support.
We value face-to-face interaction but the spread of COVID-19 was declared a disaster emergency in Delaware County on March 20, 2020. Effective March 23, 2020 we have closed our offices but not our services. Our staff is working remotely, but the Counseling Center will continue to provide clinical and outreach services online through the remainder of the semester. For assistance you may:
