Who We Are
Students face both academic and personal issues while at the University. Sometimes, personal issues become intense and may interfere with school performance and personal happiness. Our Center provides a place for students to talk about issues or concerns that are important to them.
Staff members provide outreach presentations on campus that address topics including healthy relationships, dealing with stress, and self care, while focusing on prevention education.
If you think you would benefit from counseling, you are not alone. Each year approximately 18% of the student body accesses services at the Counseling Center.
The Counseling Center Senior Staff is made up of licensed psychologists and licensed professional counselors who specialize in working with the college population. Additionally, the Center offers psychiatric services at a lower cost.
The UNC Counseling Center is accredited by the International Association of Counseling Services and our doctoral level Internship Training Program is a member of the Association of Psychology Post-doctoral and Internship Centers (APPIC). To find out more about the Counseling Center, please call us.
Counseling services are free to UNC students!
National Eating Disorder Awareness Week
Launched by the National Eating Disorders Association, National Eating Disorders Awareness Week (February 26th through March 4th) is a time dedicated to the discussion of the impacts these disorders have, engage in “myth busting,” present facts obscured by misconception, while sharing potentially lifesaving resources with those in need. This year’s theme is It’s Time to Talk AboutIt and we’re encouraging everyone to get screened.
Help UNC decrease the shame associated with Eating Disorders by participating in our activities. On March 2nd, we will be hosting the Mind-Body Fair, as well as a symposium at the UC where you can learn more about Eating Disorders and win PRIZES. Click here for more information. We hope to see you there!
