Making Your First Appointment

Initial Screenings are made by stopping by or calling the Counseling Center at (904) 620-2602.  Appointments are 90-minutes long and this includes time for completion of initial paperwork.

 

Your first appointment will provide you with an opportunity to talk confidentially with a counselor about your immediate concerns. Your counselor will talk with you about some of the reasons you scheduled the appointment and will evaluate what services or resources will be most helpful for you. Some students find that talking with a counselor once is sufficient to resolve the immediate concern. If further services would be beneficial, these will be discussed and a recommendation will be made by the counselor. These additional services may include resources offered by the Counseling Center or referral to another campus or community resource.

 

The Counseling Center also provides emergency consultations to students with urgent mental health concerns between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Please call (904) 620-2602 if you have an immediate need to meet with a counselor. After 5 p.m. and on weekends, please contact our After-Hours Crisis Hotline. Please see our Emergency Services webpage for more information about the After-Hours Crisis Hotline and other resources.
