About Counseling Services

Introduction

The goal of the two professional staff of Counseling Services is to assist students in addressing mental health concerns in a professional, unbiased, objective way. To that end, Counseling Services offers problem assessment, short-term personal counseling and career testing and counseling and, when warranted and/or desired by the student, referrals for ongoing, longer-term or specialized treatment for currently-enrolled UNO students.

In addition to personal counseling and career testing and counseling for UNO students, Counseling Services also provides consultation for UNO faculty and staff with concerns about students, psychoeducational outreach for the UNO community, and specialized professional training for graduate students in counseling and other behavioral health professions.

Fees for Services

There's no charge for the initial assessment. A small fee (determined with your counselor based on your income and a sliding scale) will apply for ongoing counseling. Career testing and counseling is also subject to very reasonable fees. Your counselor will discuss these fees and work with you regarding any financial concerns you may have.

Mental Health Emergencies

Counseling Services sees students by appointment and same-day appointments are not always available.  Same-day appointments are available for mental health emergencies defined as follows:

  • an individual who is suicidal and has a specific plan and the intent to kill him/herself;
  • an individual who has recently taken steps to end his/her life;
  • an individual who has a plan and the intent to harm someone else.
