The Counseling Center offers counseling to currently enrolled Missouri State University students. Consultation and referral services are available to others. There are no fees or charges for counseling-related services.
The first counseling session - called an intake - consists of exploring the reasons why a student is seeking counseling, relevant personal history, and the development of the student's goals for counseling. To schedule an intake, students may call the Counseling Center at 417-836-5116.
Crisis intervention is provided to deal with situations which require immediate attention. During office hours come by the Counseling Center, Magers Health and Wellness Center, Suite 304. A clinician is always available to meet with students. After hours, call the Counseling Center at 417-836-5116 to speak with an on-call counselor. Do not attempt to contact counselors about a crisis by email. The use of email is not a secure form of communication; thus, confidentiality cannot be ensured.
