Counseling Center Response to Current Events: Supporting Our Community

The University of Maryland Counseling Center staff wishes to convey their commitment to helping members of our campus community during this difficult time.

   Covid-19 Update

The Counseling Center is committed to ensuring that students are cared for during this time of uncertainty caused by COVID-19. In response to the pandemic, the Counseling Center successfully transitioned most of its services to an online format, and we will continue to offer these “teleservices” during the Fall 2020 semester. As with students who contact us by phone, students who walk in seeking services will be scheduled to speak with a counselor remotely by videoconferencing or by phone. Under certain circumstances, such as an immediate mental health emergency, an in-person appointment may be scheduled.

For more information about managing mental health and wellbeing during the COVID-19 crisis, please visit our COVID-19 Care and Support Resources page.
