Taking care of your emotional health

Taking care of your mental and emotional health is part of taking care of you!

If you’re feeling sad, anxious, or overwhelmed it is hard to do everything on your to-do list, like school, relationships, work, family responsibilities and self-care. We understand your life is demanding — and we want to help you find ways to manage those demands and get the most out of your time at IUPUI.

We’ll help you find the right mental health service for you

We offer a range of mental health services for IUPUI students and will help you find what is right for you.

While you might assume that you need to work one-on-one with one of our therapists, sometimes a group counseling format is a better option. If you suspect your issues might be related to a learning disorder, we can conduct the appropriate assessments to find out. We can even help you manage your psychiatric medication. If you are looking for off-campus options, we can help you with that as well.

We’ll help you determine what the appropriate option is at your first appointment.
