Dedicated to Promoting Your Mental Health
The UCR Counseling Center strives to be warm and welcoming. We provide a range of programs to promote mental health, emotional resilience and wellness throughout the campus community. Our clinical services include individual counseling, couples counseling, and group therapy, as well as psychiatric services. All of our services are free, confidential and provided by a diverse and multiculturally competent professional staff.
Our stress management programs include a six-session Biofeedback training program, weekly drop-in meditation and relaxation groups, StressBusters Peer Educators programming, and a library of meditation and relaxation exercises for streaming and downloading. Programs are aimed at assisting students in managing various stressors associated with university life, relationship struggles, reducing anxiety and time management.
Our professional clinicians offer outreach and consultation to faculty, staff and students across campus. We provide training and education on a variety of mental health and wellness topics, specifically focusing our efforts on working with distressed, suicidal, and disruptive students on campus.
Our clinicians work with students, parents, staff and faculty during orientation programs, in classes, at health and wellness fairs, in residence halls, at fraternities and sororities, in crisis situations, and, of course, as a collaborative member of the Student Wellness Partners.
We also provide vocational testing and counseling to UCR students. Vocational testing helps to assess what people do well, what their interests are, and what may lead them to long-term satisfaction.
