Counseling Services at the U of M Crookston provides free personal, crisis, and developmental counseling services. Counseling Services also provide confidential consultation and referrals for students who have been experiencing sexual violence, relationship violence, stalking, or harrassment.  Counseling Services may provide referral assistance to community based mental health providers.

Counseling Services provide mental health counseling, brief psychotherapy, and referrals for ongoing clinical services.  Our purpose is to support students' personal development, help students cope with challenges, assist students in developing resiliency, help students problem solve around difficult situations and circumstances, and assistance identifying appropriate campus resources for additional support. One of our highest priorities is to make this a place where you feel safe to talk about your concerns.  With the assistance of your counselor, you will develop specific goals for your counseling experience and work with your counselor to accomplish these goals.  

COUNSELING SERVICES DOES NOT PROVIDE

Counseling Services strives to provide as much support for students’ mental health care as possible. However, we are not able to provide some specialized services, resource-intensive programs, services beyond the scope of Student Counseling mission, or those which pose a conflict of interest.  As such, we do not provide:

  • Clinical services for students studying away from the campus including international or domestic exchange. We do not serve incoming first-year students prior to Orientation, students who have graduated, or alumni
  • Clinical services to staff or faculty
  • Long-term counseling
  • Specialty care such as EMDR, psychoanalysis, bodywork, etc.
  • Intensive substance abuse treatment
  • Intensive outpatient treatment
  • Testing for learning disabilities or attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Assessment and documentation for service or emotional support animals
  • Forensic evaluations
  • Neuropsychological evaluations
  • Court ordered treatment, treatment that is the stipulation of probation and mandated treatment
  • Evaluations for attorneys or courts related to difficulties such as alcohol infractions (e.g., driving under the influence) or other domestic matters such as parents seeking custodial authority of a student
  • Services to students who are not medically stable or require intensive medical treatment
  • Mediation for on-campus proceedings

Although we do not provide these services, we will assist students in accessing these resources off-campus. If you would like assistance in finding an on-campus resource to meet your needs, please schedule an appointment with one of our counselors.
