Counseling Resources

CAMPUS COUNSELORS
Three licensed professional counselors provide confidential counseling sessions in accordance with the ethical guidelines of the American Counseling Association.  Counseling is available Monday through Friday from 8 am-5 pm. 

ULIFELINE
In addition to our two personal, on campus counselors, UVa-Wise Counseling Services offers students a great online counseling tool -- ULifelineULifeline (www.ulifeline.org/schools/uvawise) is an anonymous, internet-based resource that provides students with a non-threatening and supportive link to their college mental health center.  It combines the following features into one website and is yet another resource for mental health information:

  • SELF-e-VALUATOR  Developed by Duke University Medical Center, the Self-e-Valuator is an on-line screening designed to help students determine if they are at risk for depression, suicide, alcohol/substance dependence, eating disorders, generalized anxiety disorder and obsessive-compulsive disorder.
  • MENTAL HEALTH REFERENCE LIBRARY  This reference library provides quality information and has been reviewed and approved by medical experts at Harvard Medical School.
  • GO ASK ALICE  This in-depth health question and answer internet site produced by educators at Columbia University, contains archives of hundreds of responses to anonymously-posed inquiries from college students.
  • CONCERNED ABOUT A FRIEND  This section, provided by National Mental Health Association, describes warning signs for depression and suicide, includes information regarding how to help a friend, and lists resources for additional assistance.
