Faculty, Parents & Staff

How can we help students in distress? We have helpful guides outlining recognizing signs of concerning and critical situations, infographics on valuable resources and emergency referral information.

How do I make an appointment for a student?

Students need to call to make an appointment for themselves. Students can also walk in for a consultation or schedule their appointments between 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m, Monday-Friday.

Students have the option to use TELUS 24/7 mental health and wellbeing support.

Can I access the student's mental health information?

All Counseling Center records are confidential in accordance with Iowa mental health law. Student records can only be released to a third party with a student’s written consent.
