OWU Counseling Services strives to assist our diverse population of students through various challenges affecting their mental health and wellbeing. Through a spectrum of services ranging from individualized interventions to community-wide prevention, students can access the tools and knowledge necessary for continued growth, resilience, and wellness. Our services include short-term counseling, crisis intervention, advocacy, consultation, and outreach programming. 

If you are interested in scheduling an appointment:

As an OWU student, you have access to free options for mental health treatment and support. To meet with an OWU counselor, please call us at 740-368-3145 or stop by our office in R.W. Corns 316 to schedule an appointment. After asking a few questions about yourself, your contact information, and your availability, we will schedule you with one of our counselors for an initial consultation. During this appointment, you and your counselor will identify next steps based on your individualized needs, goals, and presenting concerns. These next steps may include referrals to treatment providers outside of OWU if you would benefit more from a longer-term, intensive, or specialized plan for care. 

You also have access to virtual treatment, 24/7 support, and crisis intervention through the Virtual Care Group. These services include a 24/7 hotline at 1-888-507-3071 and virtual appointments with mental health counselors and urgent medical care providers. If interested in ongoing appointments, please register at the following link (click here) and follow the prompts to schedule an appointment. 

Of note, counseling is a confidential service and all appointments should only be accessed by the individual who intends to receive services.  Please do not schedule appointments on behalf of other students.  Please let us know if you need to cancel or reschedule an appointment with at least 24 hours notice to avoid delays in care. 

If you are in crisis and/or experiencing an emergency:

To speak with a counselor immediately, please call the Virtual Care Group's FREE phone support service, available anytime day or night at 1-888-507-3071.
