USU Counseling and Psychological Services Dedicated to Serving During COVID-19 Pandemic

Six months after the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic hit Utah, the Utah State University’s Counseling and Psychological Services is making sure all Utah State campus communities are aware of the mental health assistance it provides.

The mission of USU’s mental health services is to embrace a holistic approach to student development by removing psychological, emotional, and behavioral barriers to learning and success. The mental health services staff is committed to meeting the needs of individuals from diverse backgrounds, including differences of culture, ethnicity, gender, religion, ability, and sexual orientation.

USU is putting a special focus on its mental health and wellness preventative services right now, with workshops and support groups that are open to anyone affiliated with USU on any campus. All other services range from single sessions to ongoing meetings to group therapy.

The cost of mental health services is covered by annual student fees and state E&G funds, making most services free to eligible students. To receive ongoing services, students on the Logan and Price campuses must meet a minimum credit hour requirement (nine for undergraduate students, six for graduate). Some services, including consultation and case management/referral, are open to all students regardless of credit hours.

If you are experiencing a mental or physical health crisis, call 911. Confidential and emergency therapy sessions are also available 24/7 through SafeUT.
