What types of problems can counseling help?

       The Counselors at Student Counseling Services provide Assessment, Crisis Intervention, Groups, Consultation, Referral to community resources, and Individual Counseling services to students who are actively enrolled at the University of North Alabama and who have paid the Student Health Fee. (Referrals are made for special issues and if the student needs a higher level of care.)
       The counselor and student will work together to explore personal history and issues to develop individualized goals that will help to empower the student to make positive changes and learn personalized strategies for coping with difficult situations and managing stress.

  •  Adjustment / Transition to / from College
