Available Counseling Options at SMU
The college years are traditionally a time when students experience increased personal growth and maturity through their encounters with different people, values, and concepts. Learning to balance the resources of time, energy, and freedom with academic responsibilities and interpersonal relationships can be difficult for even the most successful students.
Our staff provides short-term individual counseling to assist students in identifying, assessing, and resolving concerns which may interfere with their academic, social and emotional growth and development.
Services include, but are not limited to adjustment issues, relationships, alcohol/drug abuse, eating disorders, sexuality and gender identity, sexual harassment, and sexual assault.
To speak to Counseling Services, please call 214-768-2277.
A crisis is any situation in which a person needs immediate assistance in order to adequately cope. Our mental health professionals make every effort to respond quickly to a student in crisis. In most cases, the student can talk to a professional immediately. Students in crisis do not need an appointment and can come to the main desk at Counseling Services. After hours, call 214-768-2277 (option 2) to speak to an on-call counselor 24/7.
