Personal Counseling: Our goal is to create a safe, supportive and affirming environment for all students. Occasionally, students encounter difficulties which challenge their coping skills and undermine their success in academic and personal endeavors. Such difficulties might include academic struggles, relationship problems, depression, anxiety, alcohol or substance misuse, eating problems, and more. Our services provide brief counseling therapy to help students make satisfying career and life choices.
The efforts of the Counseling Center in the Taylor Building are augmented by the BetterMynd program. To register for this service as a student, click here. You must be eighteen years of age or older to utilize this program. Students must have a counseling assessment through CSI Counseling Department to receive free services through BetterMynds. If no assessment is done students will be charged out of pocket for counseling sessions they receive if they register on their own, with no assessment prior.
Your mental health is important to your overall health, and sometimes inpatient treatment is needed in order to restore balance. Our programs address acute psychiatric issues, in addition to medical detoxification from alcohol and drugs. We use individual, family, and group counseling to address personal, family, emotional, psychiatric, behavioral, and addiction-related problems. The common goal of our programs is to help you find positive solutions to resolve the challenges or crisis in your life.
Patients are typically accepted after referral from an emergency room encounter.
Most medical insurance plans cover all or part of the cost of care. Financial arrangements are also available. For information or to arrange a confidential consultation without cost or obligation, please call our 24-hour help line.
