University Counseling Services (UCS) and the Divisions of Collegiate Behavioral Health (CBH) and Prevention and Recovery Services (PRS) provide individual, group and couples counseling, psychiatric consultation, psychological and learning disabilities testing, and referrals for community services for all undergraduate, graduate, and professional school students and their spouses or partners. In general, these services are offered on a short-term basis (usually twelve or fewer sessions) to help students make adjustments in their personal, social, and educational areas of life. The staff of the UCS and its divisions understand the need to maintain confidentiality; therefore, we will not disclose information to any other party – for example, faculty, parents, or future employers -- without written permission from the student. Release of information without written consent would occur only in cases of imminent harm to one’s self or to another adult or child, or when compelled by law or court ruling to do so.

There are two locations on the Case Western Reserve campus: The Counseling Service in the Sears Library Building, second floor and the Center for Collegiate Behavioral Health at the University Health Service building. Both services are staffed with professional social workers, counselors, psychologists, psychiatrists, and substance abuse intervention and prevention specialists who are experienced in helping college students.


The MindBody Connection newsletter and website at illustrate our commitment to the promotion of healthy life choices for our students and the entire university community. Free workshops, groups and seminars are also offered each semester on topics including test anxiety management, interpersonal learning groups, meditation and stress reduction, overcoming shyness, students in recovery, global nomads, eating and nutrition groups and sleep hygiene. Also, the Sex, Drugs, and Rock n’ Roll Conference is an annual student conference for the appreciation of popular culture and for the prevention of alcohol and substance abuse among college students.
