The Office of Counseling Services strives to provide comprehensive, developmental counseling services to all University students who may experience emotional, behavioral, and/or psychological concerns during college life. All clinical staff are North Carolina Board Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselors or North Carolina Board Licensed Clinical Social Workers. We contract with a North Carolina Board Licensed psychiatric provider to manage psychiatric medication needs. We recognize that this time in your life brings exploration of your abilities to manage stress, build relationships, balance work and play, and learn more about wellness. It is a time for change and growth. Our office can assist you in many ways during this important time.

Counseling services are available to currently enrolled students at High Point University and are covered by student fees. Any costs associated with medication that may be prescribed by our psychiatric provider are the responsibility of the client.
