NAU Counseling Services
Note About Current Social Climate
Our students and community have had much to cope with in the recent weeks and months. Now that the Derek Chauvin trial has concluded, emotional reactions of all types are to be expected. We would like to express our continued empathy and support for all of those who have been experiencing violence and marginalization, including our Asian/Asian American students and community. Please know you are seen and valued and that we are here to support you through these times. Visit our Commitment to Diversity page for information regarding Counseling Services’ response and related resources. Telehealth appointments are available via Zoom during business hours, and our on-call counselor is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Please call 928-523-2261 to schedule a telehealth appointment or to speak with the on-call counselor. We also realize that there are times when our students may prefer to speak with a therapist with specific demographics or personal experiences. If this is the case, please let us know.
COUNSELING SERVICES CONTINUES TO PROVIDE TELEHEALTH SUPPORT TO ALL NAU STUDENTS
We remain committed to your health and well-being
Beginning in April, 2021, Counseling Services will resume offering limited in-person services in addition to telehealth counseling. Counselors will consider these requests on a case-by-case basis, and therefore, there is no guarantee that in-person service requests will be granted. We ask that you please speak to your counselor about this request.
If you are interested in initiating counseling services, please call 928-523-2261 to schedule. You will be connected with one of our medical or mental health providers for a telehealth appointment. This call-first procedure is in place to better serve you, increase efficiency, and ultimately minimize risk for the NAU community.
Please visit our COVID-19 Resources page for additional mental health support
If you are interested in ongoing counseling, or are simply looking for mental health support, please visit our “Services” page for more information about scheduling a Path to Care appointment.
Supporting student mental health and well-being
Many students receive help with:
- adjustment to college
- eating concerns
- anxiety and stress
- substance abuse
- academic issues
- career and vocational issues
Our services are tailored to the individual needs of each student. We offer individual and couples counseling, group counseling, crisis services, outreach, and consultation about students of concern. Counseling Services staff members do not write letters of support for assistance animals at the request of a client/student.
