Resources for helping a UT student:

Faculty/Staff:
Counseling Center staff will consult with faculty/staff regarding any concerns they have with University of Toledo students. Call the Counseling Center (419.530.2426) and ask to consult with a Counseling Center staff member. If it is an emergency situation, we advise you to contact University of Toledo Police (419.530.2600) or 911. If a Counseling Center staff member is not available for an immediate consultation, we will return your call on the same business day. You may refer to the Helping Distressed Students PDF for quick information and helpful ideas.

Parents/Guardians:
If you are concerned about your student, please call the Counseling Center to schedule a consultation. If a Counseling Center staff member is unavailable for an immediate consultation, we will return your call on the same business day. If it is an emergency situation, we advise you to contact University of Toledo Police (419.530.2600) or 911. Some of our typical consultations involve issues surrounding a student’s adjustment (social, psychological, academic) to the University; how to help a student with depression and/or anxiety; how to intervene with a student who is struggling with grief and loss issues, etc.

Step 2. Screening for Counseling Services
During this appointment you will be able to discuss your concerns with a counselor and the counselor will begin to determine what type of services might be helpful for you.  What to expect during a screening appointment?

    • Sign Counseling Center agreements (2 minutes)
    • Complete Web Entry (approximately 15 minutes)
    • Meet with counselor (approximately 30-35 minutes)

Step 3. What happens after I have my Screening appointment?
If your screening counselor determined that continued counseling services (individual or group therapy) might be helpful you will need to contact the Counseling Center (419.530.2426) on the Tuesday (after 1PM) following your Screening appointment to find out your Next Step.

Possible Next Steps:

How do I withdraw if I have a medical or mental health problem?
In the event of a serious medical/mental health condition or family emergency, a student may request a withdrawal from classes. All inquiries about medical/mental health withdrawals should be directed to the Registrar’s Office in Rocket Hall 1120 or by call Megan Rospert at 419.530.4837 or 419.530.4845.  Students needing mental health services should contact Counseling Center.

No follow-up appointment necessary – In some cases, your concerns may be adequately addressed during the Screening appointment and no additional services are needed at this point.  If at any future date, a student needs additional counseling services, that student can contact the Counseling Center.

Ongoing Counseling – If it is determined that counseling could help you; we will work with the availability schedule you provided us during the “Web Entry”. If one of those times conflicts with your schedule, please provide an advance 24-hour notice.

Referral to a Group – If it is determined that a group or workshop may help you more than an individual counseling session, we will provide you with the information about the group, but it is your responsibility to register and attend.

Referral to UT Campus Resource or Outside Service – In some cases, when it is decided that another agency or service on campus or in the area could provide better help for you, we will provide you the contact information and if possible assist you with a referral.
