Student Counseling Services
At a glimpse...PLEASE NOTE:
314-977-7192 (main office)
For the 2014 Spring semester, the counselors at Student Health and Counseling will provide consultation for students seeking services. The number of counselors at this time is such that we will only be able to provide consultation and referrals to students. In the coming weeks, we hope to expand our staff and return to providing a full range of services.
We will continue to provide crisis intervention and support via the 24 hour on-call counselor (314-977-2323) and the remaining counseling staff.
When offering referrals, we will seek the best fit for you. We will do all we can to ensure that cost is not a barrier to receiving care and can provide resources for low and no cost, as needed.
Please do not hesitate to call us with questions or to speak with a counselor.

What about confidentiality?
Confidentiality is often a concern of those who seek counseling. The SLU counseling team values your confidentiality extraordinarily highly. Therefore, your complete privacy can be assured UNLESS you are a danger to yourself or others. Furthermore, mental health information and records are not available to
anyone outside or within the university without your written permission. If you have additional questions about matters of confidentiality, please ask your counselor.
