Mental Health Resources

The Mental Health Services Staff are here to serve the counseling and mental health-related needs of UCCS students. The services we provide help UCCS students achieve their educational goals, define their career goals, learn more about problem-solving processes, enhance their capacity for satisfying interpersonal relationships, and maximize their capacity for continued emotional growth. Our services include individual therapy, couples therapy, family therapy, crisis/emergency interventions, and consultation sessions for concerned friends/roommates/instructors. We also offer workshops and presentations open to the UCCS community. On our website, you will find more information about the services we offer, our staff, outside resources to help you with a variety of different issues, and ways to contact us.


Dean of Students CARE Team

The CARE (Campus Assessment Response and Evaluation) Team addresses concerns related to students’ safety and wellbeing, and supports students in times of challenge and crisis. The CARE Team assesses and responds to reported concerns or disruptions, we create access to resources for students to maintain their safety, health, and well-being, and we evaluate whether individuals pose a risk to themselves or others.

Faculty/Staff Concerns & Reporting

UCCS has adopted an institutional compliance program that is intended to support a culture of ethics and compliance within the University community by providing avenues for faculty and staff to voice these concerns. An effective compliance program promotes the achievement of University goals and helps avoid the program disruption and financial loss that can accompany compliance failures.

It’s a free and confidential service and it’s available 24/7. The service is available to all members covered under any of CU’s medical insurance plans.
