The college years can be a stressful time, full of life changes and important decisions. According to Mental Health America of Illinois, 27 percent of adults ages 18 to 24 experience mental health issues, primarily related to depression and anxiety. The CU Denver Student and Community Counseling Center provides a vital resource for helping students deal with these issues, as well as with the daily struggles of college life.
Every UCD student is entitled to 10 free counseling sessions each academic year, as well as free attendance to an unlimited number of group sessions, which cover topics like relaxation and stress management, as well as test anxiety, and social confidence.
In addition to serving students and community members, the counseling center also functions as a center for training and hands-on experience for graduate students at UCD’s School of Education and Human Development. Clients can choose to be seen by
graduate students or professional psychologists. Those who agree to meet with students also have the benefit of supervising professionals.
Members of the Denver community who are not students can also visit the counseling center up to 10 times per academic year. Sessions for non-students are priced on a rolling scale based on annual household income and number of dependents.
The center is open to members of the UCD community for appointments, as well as for emergency situation walk-ins. As with all counseling, information given is confidential.
