Need to Talk to Someone?

Students may visit on campus with one of our Counseling Ph.D. students or seek professional counseling from one of our off-campus community facilities. In the case where professional counseling is needed, students should contact one of the following staff members who will determine if a referral is warranted:

  • Sarah Werner
    Student Services Manager, College Center 208
  • Jess Simpson
    Student Support Services, College Center 208

Professional counseling is provided by Central Kansas Mental Health Center (CKMHC) or Veridian Behavioral Health in Salina. Both CKMHC and Veridian offer comprehensive mental health services and a full continuum of care for community members.

Students referred to professional counseling services may be eligible for free sessions. Please contact Sarah Werner at 785-826-2984 for more details.

Life-Threating Emergency
