Mental Health Counseling Services

Welcome to Mental Health Counseling Services as part of student support

Since 2014 the university offers confidential on-campus student support for all Univet students free of charge. As an independent student service provider, we are committed to offering on-campus student support. In addition to providing confidential individual (1:1) and group counseling,  our website offers access to useful resources in many areas of life, as we know life could become difficult in medical school at times for international students.

COVID-19 update: when the school is operating as usual – so students are allowed to attend classes and move freely on campus, counseling services will be available both “in person” and online format (for the sake of students who are unable to attend classes in person.) If restrictions again prohibit the regular operation of the university student counseling support service shifts to an online format during its regular office hours.


What is counseling? 

Professional student mental health counseling is the work of professional counselors who assist young adults, and groups with diverse needs through challenges in their life journeys. Counselors take a developmental perspective that people grow and change throughout their lives. Professional counselors understand principles of human development, psychology, mental health, and change theories, and they establish effective helping relationships with people from diverse cultures. Counselors are skilled in the assessment of people and situations, diagnosis and treatment of mental disorders, and the application of cognitive, affective, behavioral, and systemic strategies to facilitate change.

Professional student counselors help clients explore their concerns and assist them in creating change. They work with clients to implement personal goals and/or advocate for system-wide changes. As professional helpers, counselors are respectful and responsive to clients and offer a safe place for people to share their experiences and explore ways to cope. Counselors are skilled in implementing therapeutic interventions designed to help clients challenged by a range of circumstances including trauma, depression, anxiety, stress, unanticipated life events, interpersonal discord, social injustice, worksite disruption, and career issues.
