The Counseling Center provides a range of services related to mental health counseling for students, as well as educational events regarding health and wellness topics. If you are seeking support, it is our goal to ensure you a safe place where you are able to express yourself and your thoughts without judgement. Additionally, the Counseling Center provides consultation and training regarding mental health issues; information about the community health center and student health insurance; and referrals to other campus and community resources available to students, faculty, and staff. The Counseling Center also houses the Jags Stop Violence program, whose purpose is to prevent all forms of violence through various awareness campaigns, programs, and prevention efforts.

Counseling services are free and confidential to all currently enrolled UHV students. We can help students reduce stress, enhance relationships, and improve decision-making. Our goal is to empower students to achieve academic success and build skills to enhance their overall quality of life.

We are committed to creating a welcoming and comfortable atmosphere for all students regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, religion, spirituality, nationality, citizenship, physical or mental abilities, or other identities.
