After Hours Counseling Services

The UNI Counseling Center has contracted with ProtoCall to provide after hours crisis counseling to UNI students or any person concerned about a UNI student. 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.

Anxiety Screening

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.

Accreditation

The Counseling Center is accredited by the International Association of Counseling Services (IACS).
