For Students

Counseling Center Services

The Counseling Center provides mental health support for any FSU matriculated undergraduate or graduate student. Students come to the Counseling Center for a variety of reasons. Examples include:

  • Adjustment to college life
  • Difficulty with sleep
  • Anxiety, panic or excessive worry
  • Depression or sadness
  • Relationship concerns
  • Eating or body image concerns
  • Substance use concerns
  • Family concerns
  • Grief or loss
  • Academic struggles
  • Self Esteem
  • Concentration/focus
  • Trauma
  • Self-injury
  • Sexuality/gender identity

It is easy to make an appointment: either stop in or call us at 508-626-4640. We can see most students within 24 hours. We also have a walk-in time from 2:30 -3:30  each day (Students must arrive by 2:15 p.m. to be seen), and you don’t need an appointment to be seen during that time. When you come in, you will meet with one of our counselors (licensed clinicians and graduate students) and together determine a course of action.

After your initial evaluation, if you and your counselor decide that counseling at the Counseling Center would be useful, you will be seen on an every other week basis. Most students find this frequency to be effective and helpful. If you need additional support, you can talk with your counselor about what options are available.

The Counseling Center clinical services include individual counseling, couples counseling (both partners FSU students), consultation with family or friends, group counseling, medication evaluation and management (for Counseling Center clients).

 All information about your visit to the Counseling Center is confidential.
Please see our confidentiality statement for more detailed information.
