Our goal is to see students in a reasonable time period. We make every effort to schedule appointments that work with your class schedule. We ask that you try to schedule an appointment as early as possible if you have concerns. As the nature of counseling must address emergency/crisis situations first, we encourage you not to wait to call until you feel you are in a crisis. If you are experiencing considerable distress at the time of your call, please make this known to the staff immediately.
You may schedule an appointment in one of several ways.
- Email us at email@example.com
- Stop by Counseling Services on the 3rd floor of Slane to make an appointment in person during our business hours.
- Call Counseling Services at 336-888-6352. PLEASE NOTE: If you are having a mental health emergency, please do not email us or leave a voice mail and wait for a returned call. We want you to receive help immediately. In the case of emergency, please follow the instructions listed on our Crisis Situations / Emergencies page.
Groups for Fall 2017
Process Group Therapy
All are WELCOME – this group is open to all HPU students. There is no sign up or prior contact with Counseling Services needed.
A process group is an opportunity to talk about issues that are on your mind with trained mental health professions and other HPU students. It is a time to share thoughts, feelings and experience with the goal of helping each other. You can come one time just to talk about a pressing issue or come every week to get help from a group of supportive people. This is an opportunity to get support while deciding if counseling is right for you or to gain support while waiting for your upcoming appointment at Counseling Services. Process Group will meet during the Fall 2017 semester on Fridays at 12:30 in Wilson 229.
Recovery Mindset Group
