The Community Counseling Center has proudly served all Texas Wesleyan University campuses and the surrounding community since opening our doors on Sept. 24, 2007.
Clinical services are provided by master-level counseling students from the Graduate Counseling department. Wesleyan faculty and staff will be seen by the Community Counseling Center director.
The director, a clinical graduate faculty member, as well as other graduate clinical faculty, supervise each case by weekly consultations with the student counselor.
As a training facility, video taping, audio taping, and/or observations (behind a one-way mirror by other counselors and/or supervisors) occur regularly as an additional benefit to the client.
Who is eligible and what is the cost?
All students, faculty, and staff are entitled to free personal counseling services on campus at the Community Counseling Center.
Students in Online programs outside of the State of Texas
If a student desires counseling services or has counseling needs, will first call your Academic Advisor on campus. The Academic Advisor will have an assessment checklist of questions to ask the student and, after doing the short assessment, will refer the student to one of the following:
- The student's Primary Care Physician. This physician may see the student, or refer them to a mental health provider in the area.
- The Emergency Room of the nearest hospital. For more urgent needs, this will give the student a direction to take to get further resources and be seen immediately.
- Call the local Police Office. If the Academic Advisor thinks, based on the assessment checklist, that the student is in need of urgent care, he/she may ask the police to drive by the student's residence to ensure safety.
Academic Advisors may also use this procedure for any out-of-state student about whom they have concerns.
