Health Center: Mental Health Counseling
Welcome! Mental health counseling is available at no cost to students enrolled at the university. Our staff members have experience working with diverse people on a wide range of concerns. Your counselor will work with you individually to determine the goals, duration, and best methods of counseling. We also offer cognitive testing services for ADHD and learning disabilities, and nutritional counseling.
Hours: 8:30am to 4:30pm, Monday through Friday
Scheduling: Call 503-943-7134, or in person at Orrico Hall (Upper Level)
Emergencies: Call the Multnomah Country Crisis Line at 503-988-4888 (24/7, everyday)
To schedule an appointment with us, you can call 503-943-7134 and say you want to meet with a counselor. The receptionist will work with you to find a day and time that fits your availability. You can also drop by the center (Orrico Hall Upper Level) between 8:30-4:30 M-F and make an appointment in person.
Most people will be offered times during our consultation hours, which are generally from 10-11am and 2-4pm Monday through Friday, although they might be different if someone is out of the office on a particular day. To meet with a counselor during those times, please call ahead (503-943-7134) to reserve a spot. These appointments last about 20 minutes and are focused on your immediate concerns, helping connect you with campus resources, and setting up additional care, including ongoing counseling or services off-campus. If those times will not work for you, let our receptionist know, and we will try and find another time that works after exploring our schedules.
Counseling sessions are confidential, and we follow state laws that protect your privacy. Generally, we are not able disclose information to anyone (parents, professors, roommates, university administrators, etc) without your written consent to do this. More information is available in the Confidentiality Statement and Consent to Treatment form, and for any questions about confidentiality, please ask your counselor.
If you are currently experiencing a mental health emergency and urgently need to talk with a counselor, and it is within scheduled office hours, call 503-943-7134 and we can have someone talk with you right away. If it is not within scheduled office hours call or walk to Public Safety, call 911, call the Multnomah County Crisis Line (available 24 hours a day, everyday) at 503-988-4888, or drive yourself to the nearest emergency room.
