The mission of UMD Counseling Services is to provide psychological support to help students deal with their emotional issues so that they may improve their academic performance and retention.
Common Issues and Concerns
Feelings such as anxiety, anger, depression, low self-esteem, or tension are a normal part of being human and can affect anyone. Sometimes these feelings are temporary and can be eased by rest, relaxation, exercise, good nutrition and the support of trusted friends. At other times, stressors, relationships or past family experiences cannot be managed so easily and become overwhelming. If this happens, and you find it hard to function, you may want to seek professional help.
Personal counseling provides a safe environment where people can share their thoughts and feelings, explore concerns, gain new awareness, and make helpful changes.
Last year, hundreds of students were assisted through individual and group counseling at UMD Health Services. Professional services are offered that can help you deal with the real pressures of college life and the personal transitions you may be experiencing.
Counseling at UMD Health Services is free of charge for all registered UMD students (fees apply for ADHD testing sessions).
The Health Services Counseling Department is accessible to all students who pay the student service fee. Information about the Student Services Fee and the Health Services Summer Fee can be found under Insurance and Billing Information.
We are committed to ensuring that information resulting from counseling sessions is held in strict confidence. Any information exchanged during the counseling process is used exclusively for the benefit of the student. Counseling records are not kept in student academic files and information is not released to anyone without the student's written permission.
The Health Services Counseling Department has been accredited through the International Association of Counseling Services since 1994.
