With the Fall semester now in full-swing, the PSYC Advising team wants to share to some of the support resources available on campus for Boise State students. If you have questions about any of these resources, feel free to reach out to us via email (firstname.lastname@example.org), or stop by our office hours.
Health Services offers individual counseling by appointment, allowing students the opportunity to work one-on-one with a counselor in a confidential setting to address personal issues. Both in-person and virtual appointments are available. To schedule an appointment with a counselor, call Health Services at (208) 426-1459.
Health Services also offers group counseling, which is free of charge! There are six different groups being offered during the Fall semester, each of which meets once per week. For more information about each of the groups, as well as their meeting times and locations, visit Health Services’ website.
If a problem or crisis feels too overwhelming to wait for a scheduled appointment, staff are available at Health Services who can provide crisis counseling. To access these services, call Health Services at (208) 426-1459 or stop by their office in-person, which is located on the second floor of the Norco Building.
