Welcome to the Counseling Center
We are deeply saddened by the recent shootings in El Paso and around the country. Our hearts are with the victims and the communities directly or indirectly impacted, including our own here at Texas State. During the aftermath of these horrific events, our counselors are available to meet with Texas State students if needed. Students not enrolled during the summer semester may also receive emergency services. Please see below for information about how to make an appointment, and specify if you are seeking counseling related to recent tragedies when you contact us.
For information about how to manage associated distress, please visit the American Psychological Association page.
Counseling Center Services
Counseling Center services are free, confidential, and provided by trained professionals to currently enrolled Texas State students while classes are in session.
Counseling Center Services include brief individual, group, and couples counseling, consultation and crisis response, and workshops about coping with stress and other mental health topics.
Individual counseling at the Round Rock Campus is also available on a limited basis.
Texas State is committed to the holistic well-being of its students. In an effort to encourage Texas State students to call Emergency 911 in case of a drug or alcohol related medical emergency, a student will be granted amnesty from formal university disciplinary procedures if:
-The student requested medical assistance in response to the possible alcohol or drug overdose of another person;
-The student was the “first” person to make a request for medical assistance;
-The student remained on the scene until medical assistance arrived; and
-The student cooperated with medical assistance and law enforcement personnel.
The reporting student will be expected to provide an account of the episode/event to a university official regardless of the amnesty standard being applied
