Welcome to The Counseling Center

Introducing the Social Work Care Collaborative (SWCC)

Engagement, Collaboration, Support, Assessments, Referrals, Outreach, Care, Counseling, Advocacy…. The Social Work Care Collaborative (SWCC) offers a wide range of services to the community and to App State students!

The SWCC was established in the Spring semester of 2019 to support members of our community while providing students with a quality field experience with activities on the individual, groups, community, and organizational levels. The SWCC has partnered with other departments in the Beaver College of Health Sciences, other colleges, community members, organizations and agencies to help fill areas of service gaps and to assist other groups in meeting or extending their identified service goals.

"Finding Balance During Breaks"

As many college students look forward to a well-deserved break this summer, we know that time away from campus can also present its own unique set of challenges and stressors. With this in mind, we've created a new self-help guide, "Finding Balance During Breaks," that includes tips for maintaining healthy routines, relationships, and more during breaks from school. We've also included ways to stay connected with the Counseling Center and our resources, in addition to a variety of national resources that may be helpful for students while away from campus. Check it out on the Self-Help page of our website for this and other self-help materials. Happy summer!

Let’s Talk is going virtual!

L e t ' s  T e l e T a l k!

Due to recommendations from the CDC, State of North Carolina, and UNC System related to COVID-19, the ASU Counseling & Psychological Services Center (the Counseling Center) is not offering in-person Let’s Talk consultations until further notice. However, we are excited to offer a virtual version of this service, Let’s TeleTalk. Let’s TeleTalk is a program that provides easy access to informal, brief, confidential one-on-one consultations with Counseling Center counselors. Let’s TeleTalk provides informal consultations to help students address specific problems and to familiarize them with the process of talking to a counselor. Let’s TeleTalk consultants can share helpful resources, offer their perspective on a student’s concerns, and assist in learning how to help a friend; additionally, they can help students determine whether formal counseling at the Counseling & Psychological Services Center would be useful and, if appropriate, assist students in scheduling an appointment. Although Let’s TeleTalk counselor consultants are mental health professionals, this service is not intended to be a substitute for psychotherapy or emergency services and does not constitute mental health treatment.

Disclaimer: While we strive to ensure the confidentiality of Let’s TeleTalk sessions, there are privacy risks associated with any online platforms.
