UMSL Health, Counseling and Disability Access Services joins the rest of our university community in expressing our care and concern for everyone who has been impacted by the difficult circumstances of the past weeks and months. At a time when we are collectively feeling the impact of a global pandemic, we are now facing the sadness, pain, frustration and anger of our nation’s longstanding history of systemic discrimination and racially motivated injustices. While the tragedies, most recently in Minneapolis and Atlanta, can be traumatizing for all of us, we recognize that tragedies like this are especially injurious to members of our African American community and other people of color. It is normal to experience a wide range of emotions when experiencing these events. Please know that we are committed to providing supportive care to all UMSL students, particularly those who have been impacted by these experiences.
We stand ready to provide sensitive and compassionate care for your physical and mental health needs. We currently provide limited in person services, but are readily available for secure and confidential virtual meetings with all clinical staff, as well as hosting weekly support group sessions. Additionally, we hope that the resources and services available on our website are of assistance. We sincerely invite you to contact us if you, or someone you know, needs support with coping and healing in these trying times.
We here at Counseling Services understand the stress of living in a world with COVID-19. We have a webpage with resources dedicating to helping you cope during this time of pandemic crisis.
Counseling Services is staffed by qualified and accredited mental health professionals. We're dedicated to making a difference in the lives of students by providing a safe, confidential environment to focus on issues from your past, your present, and your future.
We help you work through issues you might be experiencing with relationships, family, work, school, and internal conflicts. We're located on the lower level of the Millennium Student Center on UMSL's North Campus.
