What services are offered?

At the Counseling Center, we know that everyone is an individual with unique challenges, strengths, and needs.  We strive to provide students with a wide range of culturally sensitive services to help you grow and succeed during your time at UCM.   Our brief counseling, crisis intervention, consultation, and outreach services are free for UCM students.

Data Sheet

You will meet with a psychologist for 45-50 minutes who will hear your concerns and ask about your overall well being. Near the end of the initial assessment you will be given recommendations regarding what you could do or what type of help you may need to cope with your concerns and where would be most appropriate to get help. There are times available every week for initial assessments.


If you need help that the CC is unable to provide, we will recommend places where you can get what you need. Click here for additional referral resources.

Brief Individual Therapy

In individual therapy, the student meets one on one with the psychologist. If your concerns are something the CC could help you with, the psychologist who meets with you during your initial assessment may suggest you return for a certain number of meetings to assist you in working on them.

Group Therapy

Group therapy offers an opportunity to interact with others who have similar concerns. It is a good option for concerns about how you get along with others or how you communicate with other people. In group, you will have the opportunity to receive feedback about how you come across to others and the opportunity to try new ways of interacting with others in a supportive environment. Groups are generally offered in the fall and in the spring depending upon interest. If you are interested in group therapy, call the CC to schedule an initial assessment and ask your psychologist about availability.

Emergency Services

A psychologist is available Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. - 12:00 and from 12:45  - 5:00 p.m., for persons who are experiencing urgent or life threatening concerns. An initial assessment will be provided. For emergencies at other times, call Public Safety at 660-543-4123, call 911, or go directly to the emergency room at Western Missouri Medical Center at 403 Burkharth Road, or call the community 24 hour hotline at 888-279-8188.


Students, parents, staff, and faculty may speak with a psychologist if they want to know what to do to help a distressed student. Since psychologists are experts on human behavior, the staff of CC may be of assistance in a variety of ways, such as by serving on committees or advising on program development.  Additional information is available from the Counseling Center page for parents, faculty and staff, and students who are concerned about a friend.


CC staff can speak to organizations, groups, clubs, classes, etc., about a variety of topics related to psychological health and well being.
