The UIndy Student Counseling Center offers the following kinds of clinical services. For more detailed information about the services provided, please call the Center at (317) 788-5015.
Individual, group and couples counseling
Our staff of psychologists and doctoral psychology students provide individual, group and couples counseling services for students with a wide range of problems. Emphasis is on short-term work, but longer-term therapy is also available. Students are encouraged to call for appointments. Students who initiate counseling services will begin by completing brief information forms. The initial portion of the counseling focuses on an assessment of the situation, contributory factors, and an appropriate plan for intervention. Students may then continue with individual counseling, be referred to a counseling group, or be referred to other sources of help in the community.
We offer walk-in crisis service between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. daily, Monday through Friday. Every effort is made to assess those in crisis as soon as possible, depending on the severity of the situation as well as staff availability.
Help after hours
Residence life staff and campus police are trained to help students gain access to service in the event of an "after hours" crisis. There are systems in place to notify the Counseling Center staff during non-business hours. Local hospital emergency rooms are an option in severe cases. The UIndy community in general works to help students learn to distinguish the kinds of crises that require immediate attention from those that can wait until morning. It is not uncommon for several members of the University community to work together to assist students in getting the help they need.
