Beginning in early August, you can call the Counseling Center after hours at 273-2676 and press 1 to leave a message or press 2 to speak to a mental health professional. This is an extension of the UNI Counseling Center services and can assist a caller in a mental health crisis situation. Counselors can also assist callers in accessing Counseling Center services or other campus resources.
No Show Fee
The Counseling Center charges a "no show fee" for failing to attend or cancel your scheduled appointment. The fee is being raised to $25, effective May 11, 2015. You can avoid this fee if you call the Counseling Center at 273-2676 to cancel or reschedule your appointment.Be sure to talk with your counselor if you have any questions about this or any other Counseling Center policy.
The Counseling Center hosted a free, anonymous screening for anxiety on Wednesday March 4. Eighteen participants received information about anxiety, took an anonymous screening questionnaire, and met briefly with a counselor to review the results.
As always, you can take a free, anonymous mental health screening for anxiety, depression, eating disorders and other concerns at any time by taking the Self-Evaluator at Ulifeline.org.
