Counseling Center

The Counseling Center provides free individual counseling services to currently enrolled GRU students using a brief counseling model for short term counseling. Brief counseling is often effective for common issues and using this model allows us to serve a greater number of clients with our available resources. Most clients attend about 4 to 5 sessions. For clients who will be better served by an off-campus referral for more long-term, intensive counseling or specialized psychiatric care. Clients identified as needing a referral will be assisted with locating an appropriate off-campus mental health provider.

A current Student ID must be presented at appointments to verify student enrollment. Fees are required for the Alumni Career Counseling Program.

Self Evaluator

The Self Evaluator was developed for ULifeline by Duke University School of Medicine and screens for thirteen of the most common mental health conditions that college students face. This screening does not provide a diagnosis, but identifies problems that could be impacting thoughts, feelings and behaviors. The screening process also provides information on these conditions and how to reach out for help. Click on Self Evaluation above.
