The Counseling Center

The Counseling, Testing and Mental Health Center provides in-house counseling, psychological assessment and psychiatric services on a short-term basis for TCU students. Students requiring specialized or long-term services will be referred to professionals off campus. The center's counselors are licensed and have extensive training and experience working with college students. The staff includes psychologists, licensed professional counselors and part-time consulting psychiatrists. Services are provided confidentially.

The center's services are designed to help students cope with personal concerns as they engage in their academic, social and personal activities. Typical student needs and concerns include resolving interpersonal conflicts; managing stress; coping with loneliness; and handling feelings of depression, anxiety and other emotional crises.

Individual and group counseling services are available to assist students. Students in counseling may be referred for psychiatric evaluation for medication, with follow-up appointments if medication is initiated. The Counseling Center provides consultation to concerned parents, faculty, and friends. No confidential information about clients of the center will be shared without a release. The center also provides education and outreach to residence halls, classes and campus organizations on a wide variety of topics in mental health.

The Testing Services of the center help students learn more about their aptitudes, achievements, interests, values, and personality. The College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) and national tests for admission to graduate schools are administered.

The center is located at the west entrance of the Health Center. Services are available by appointment, Monday through Friday 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
