Welcome to University Counseling Services
Before you begin
University Counseling Services will likely be able to offer you an initial assessment appointment within one week of your request to schedule such a meeting (depending on your availability). At that appointment you and your counselor will discuss how UCS can best serve your needs and what counseling will look like for you moving forward.
For your convenience please use the northwest entrance of the McKinney Center. When you are facing the front of the building, use the door on the right.
Monday – Friday 8am-4:30pm
- Phone: 660-785-4014 (after hours crisis: 660-665-5621*)
- Fax: 660-785-7444
- Email: email@example.com**
*In order to be able to best serve students who may need crisis care we define a crisis as an immediate onset of severe psychological symptoms that cannot be mitigated through self-initiated care or support from caring others. Examples may include: urges to harm yourself, plans to harm someone else, hearing voices that aren’t there, the immediate experience of trauma, etc. For non-crisis care please call to schedule an appointment during regular office hours.
**Please call or stop by our office to schedule an appointment. Please note we cannot schedule appointments online or via email. If you have questions, please call or email our office.
Consider the following options for your self-care:
Take good care of yourself: Talk with trusted friends and / or family members, get a good night’s sleep, eat healthy meals, rest, exercise, go for a walk, go to class, have some fun, write your thoughts and feelings down in a journal, breathe.
If you prefer to seek services off-campus, you can learn about other Kirksville agencies here.
If you are seeking a medication referral and not counseling, consider contacting your family physician or the Student Health Center at 660-785-4182.
