Oppression and violence in our world have a profound impact on all of us, affecting our collective mental health, wellbeing, and spirits. Some members of our community are directly involved or impacted by the acts of violence. While others in our community have a profound understanding of oppression through their lived experience. And others may become paralyzed with grief, anger, confusion, and fear as they try to make sense of the difficult national and world news.
The UCC acknowledges (and stands against) the many acts of oppression and violence in our world and the different impact these events have on all members of our community based on our individual identities, positionality, and the privileges we hold. The UCC strives to be a safe place for all students to talk about the impact of these current events on their lives and to consider the ways in which power and privilege play a role in events and how we respond to them. The UCC staff will strive to meet you where you are around any issue, including those that may be difficult to process or those that go unaddressed in many situations. Please know that the state of the world and current events ARE topics we welcome in the therapy space. We are here for you.

College is a time of major transition, change, and growth. It can be exciting and challenging and, at times, overwhelming, too. The stressors of college life may impact your mental health and make it difficult to manage daily life and often rigorous academic demands. The University Counseling Center (UCC) is here to help. Here, we provide a safe, confidential, nonjudgmental space where students can explore a wide variety of issues and concerns. Our services include crisis intervention, brief consultations, workshops, Drop-In services, group and individual counseling, psychiatric care for medication management, and referrals to off-campus treatment providers. All UCC services are confidential, free, and available to all degree-seeking students currently enrolled at the University of Notre Dame.
All students seeking services for the first time at the UCC do so through our Drop-In system. Simply come to the UCC during scheduled Drop-In hours and complete an in-person Drop-In appointment with a UCC counselor. We will discuss any immediate concerns, help you develop a plan to address ongoing issues, and connect you with additional UCC services or campus resources as needed.
