The Student Counseling Center is the university’s primary facility for personal counseling, psychotherapy, and mental health outreach and consultation services. Our mission is to promote the psychological, educational, and social well-being of the students of the University of Tennessee and to help prepare them to be productive members of a global society.

Student Health Services Building Mask Policy

In accordance with current CDC guidance for universal source control in healthcare facilities, facial coverings remain required within the Student Health Services Building regardless of one’s COVID-19 immunization status. A facial covering must be worn anytime you are entering/visiting the Student Health Services Building, including the Student Health Center, Student Counseling Center, and/or Center for Health Education and Wellness.

Telecounseling and Psychiatry Services Available

Individual, couples, and group counseling, as well as mental health workshops, will be offered through a HIPAA compliant version of Zoom videoconferencing software. Appointments can be made by calling 865-974-2196 or in person at the Student Health Center.

End of semester procedures are in place!  With only a few days left in the semester, students who call in for an initial appointment will be scheduled with a clinician for a single problem solving session.  You can talk through a focused issue, get community referals or other help resources.

We achieve this by providing culturally responsive counseling services, specialized training for our staff, participation in community events that promote diversity and inclusion, and exemplifying a welcoming, compassionate presence within the Volunteer community.
