Counseling Services provides flexible, culturally informed services, in an atmosphere welcoming diversity in culture, sexuality, gender, religion and other identity factors. We support K-State Safe Zone.
Therapy is provided to address emotional, relationship, or other mental health concerns that interfere with academic or personal effectiveness. Group therapy is often recommended as the preferred mode of treatment, particularly for relational concerns. Some of the concerns that are commonly addressed in therapy at CS are:
- Help with immediate crisis situations or distress
- Mild to moderate depression
- Mild to moderate anxiety
- Adjustment to the university or culture
- Relationship concerns (friends, family, roommates, romantic partnerships)
- Identity concerns (sexual, racial/ethnic, religious, gender, etc.)
- Life transitions
- Test anxiety, perfectionism, procrastination, and other academic performance concerns
- Sexual assault
Most students’ needs are met in 1-6 appointments. Referrals to community therapists are provided for consistent, weekly therapy sessions as well as longer-term or specialty care.
