Counseling / Health Education
Located on the second floor of the Ridgway University Center, The Office of Counseling and Health Education helps all students with both physical and mental health issues.
At the University of Evansville, we strive to offer every student the support you need to succeed – both on-campus and after graduation.
The Office of Counseling and Health Education offers counseling services for students experiencing personal adjustment or psychological problems that require professional attention. The counselors assist students with identifying and developing skills that will help them to effectively meet their educational and life goals.
Because interpersonal, psychological, and developmental issues can interfere with learning and – ultimately – with personal success, our office strives to help students overcome those issues through services that include:
Personal Development Counseling
Individual counseling is available for psychological or developmental issues such as school adjustment problems, self-esteem enhancement, depression, anxiety, substance abuse issues, and eating disorders. Health education and wellness programs are offered to assist students in making healthy lifestyle choices during their college careers.
The office is open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday in the Ridgway University Center. Appointments can be made by calling 812-488-2663. Emergency counseling services are available after hours by calling the Office of Safety and Security at 812-488-2051, and asking for the counselor on call.
Academic counseling is available to aid students in study skills, stress management, test anxiety, and time management.
Online Information & Resources
The University of Evansville has joined with other colleges and universities to provide free, anonymous, up to date information and resources to students online through the Ulifeline Web site.
The counselors in the Office of Counseling and Health Education abide by the professional ethical standards of the National Association of Social Workers. A counselor may not reveal information to anyone about a client unless the client gives written permission to do so.
