Making An Appointment
If you are a currently enrolled student and are interested in seeking support and services from the UNF Counseling Center, you may do so by calling 904.620.2602, or walking into the center, to schedule an assessment. Assessments will take about one hour to complete and are scheduled on a first come, first served basis.
During an assessment, your counselor will talk with you about some of the reasons you are seeking support, explore your mental health history, 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 a referral to another campus or community resource.
Crisis Walk-In Appointments
The Counseling Center also provides emergency/crisis walk-in appointments to students with urgent mental health concerns between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. any day the counseling center is open. Please call 904.620.2602 or walk into the counseling center if you have an immediate need to meet with a counselor. After 5 p.m. and on weekends, please contact our After-Hours Crisis Helpline by calling 904.620.2602 and selection option 2. Please see our Emergency Services page for more information about the After-Hours Crisis Helpline and other resources.
Currently enrolled students can receive up to a maximum of six sessions of individual counseling per semester. Individual counseling appointments will be scheduled, at most, every other week. Missed appointments and late cancellations will count toward the six-session limit.
