Our Purpose

Free confidential counseling is available on campus to all students. We focus primarily on short-term counseling. Referrals to outside agencies for more extensive or comprehensive services are also available; however, Shepherd University will not assume the cost for these outside services.

In case of a life-threatening emergency, call 911, or 9-911 from a campus phone. Always notify your resident assistant of an emergency if you live on campus.

Each illness has its own symptoms, but common signs of mental illness in adults and adolescents can include the following. If you are experiencing these symptoms, please seek mental health support.

If you are responding to a distressed student, use ALGEE from Mental Health First Aid:
