*Coronavirus Update: Impact on Counseling Center Hours

Due to utmost concerns for health and safety during this time of COVID-19, the Counseling Center is no longer open for face-to-face appointments and is now functioning entirely remotely. You may still call the Counseling Center phone number at 312-996-3490 during current business hours (9am-5pm) to schedule an appointment or to contact a counselor. If calling after hours, press 2 to be connected to a crisis counselor.

For students:

-Initial consultations are being conducted by video, using Webex rather than in-person. All students should have access to Webex using their UIC login credentials.  Call the Counseling Center at 312-996-3490 to schedule an initial consultation.
-Counselors are providing individual therapy services by video (using Webex) and phone, with video being preferred.
-Some group therapies and workshops are being migrated to online formats. Current group therapy clients are being contacted by group co-facilitators regarding support in the absence of face-to-face contact.
-If you are currently receiving psychiatric services at the Counseling Center, please email your psychiatrist to arrange for a time to speak with her about plans for your continued treatment during this time.
-If you suspect you have come into contact with someone with the coronavirus, or are having symptoms of fever, cough or difficulty breathing, we ask that you seek medical evaluation.  If you need to speak with a counselor urgently or need other resources, let us know during your call.

For faculty and staff:

-We appreciate your support of UIC students and are available to consult regarding how best to support a student(s).

Please refer back to this page for updates, as we will continue to evaluate our protocols for the best ways to deliver services in response to changing needs.
