Counseling Services

Degree-seeking students currently enrolled at the University of Notre Dame, and international non-degree seeking students, are eligible for counseling services.. Given the counseling center’s brief model of treatment, an initial assessment helps determine the optimal fit between a student’s needs and available UCC and community resources in order to ensure the best possible treatment outcome.

The UCC does not provide individual counseling for students who are currently receiving those same services elsewhere. If a student is receiving therapy via an electronic means (e.g. phone, Skype, e-mail, etc.) from a home provider, we will provide crisis services if needed.

Consultation Services

Any faculty, staff, student, friend, or relative who is concerned about a Notre Dame student in crisis may call an on-call UCC staff counselor to discuss how you may refer the student to seek services at the UCC. Our staff can also consult with you regarding ways to deal with behavioral or emotional problems experienced by students on campus. Call 574-631-7336 during regular office hours (9:00am – 5:00pm, Monday through Friday). You may call after hours if the student’s crisis is serious and urgent. Notre Dame faculty, staff, and student groups are also eligible to call the UCC to request other types of consultation, such as educational, program, or organizational consultation services.

Outreach Services

UCC staff can collaborate with Notre Dame faculty, staff, and student groups on programs and events open to the student community.

Community Mental Health Resources

If you are not a degree-seeking student currently enrolled at Notre Dame, the community mental health center is Oaklawn. Notre Dame faculty and staff who would like to seek a no-cost, confidential evaluation, or referrals for counseling, mental health, legal, or other services can contact the Employee Assistance Program administered through the Human Resources Department. The employee may contact an EAP professional at 574-287-1879.

If you are interested in receiving marital or couples counseling, you may contact the Marital Therapy and Research Clinic, which is located on Douglas Road just north of campus. The Marital Therapy and Research Clinic is a non-profit research, training, and service organization affiliated with the University of Notre Dame’s Department of Psychology. Established as both a research center for the study of marital relations and a training site for graduate-level marriage counselors, the Clinic also provides quality research-supported psychological services to couples in South Bend and the surrounding community.
