We steadfastly respect the dignity and worth of each individual student, and stand ready to serve you. Current events may be affecting you, your fellow students, or loved ones in a variety of ways. We routinely work with students from marginalized and underserved communities who have been impacted by past or present events. If you need the support of a counselor, we are, as we have always been, here for you.

Talk with a counselor about CMHC's counseling options by calling 512-471-3515 or coming to the 5th floor of the SSB. Some options might include:

  • Same-day crisis support: Walk in to CMHC Monday-Friday, 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. to meet with a counselor or call CMHC's 24/7 Crisis Line at 512-471-2255
  • Short-term individual counseling: CMHC offers short-term individual counseling services. A BART (Brief Assessment and Referral Team) counselor will help you determine which services are available and most appropriate. 
  • CMHC's free and unlimited groups: CMHC offers a wide variety of groups, classes, and skill-building workshops that address a range of student needs including groups specifically for students of various identities and backgrounds.
  • Diversity Counseling and Outreach Specialists: CMHC’s Diversity Counseling and Outreach Specialists have a unique role in specializing services to reach our diverse student body, but all CMHC clinicians and staff are specifically trained in and committed to this role.


We encourage you take care of your mental, emotional, and physical health today and every day. A resource you might consider using is one of our MindBody Labs. Locations are in the Student Services Building (SSB), the Student Activity Center (SAC), and the School of Nursing. Please also visit here for tips about practicing self-care.

We're here for you.    We recognize that many UT students are being impacted by historical and recent events. The CMHC holds firm to the university’s values and commitment to diversity and inclusion. Our staff are here to help students navigate through these times. Click here to learn about our resources.
