SERVICES FOR FULL-TIME STUDENTS:
The University Counseling Center (UCC) provides time limited individual and couples therapy and yearlong group therapy to members to the University of Rochester community who pay the mandatory student health fee; individual and couples therapy appointments last 45-50 minutes, while therapy groups run for 1 hour and 20 minutes. Therapy is available for a variety of problems including anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, family problems, grief, school-related problems, and general discomfort about what’s happening in a person’s life
Our therapists are licensed professionals and professionals-in-training from a variety of mental health disciplines. They employ many treatment approaches and draw upon a wide range of training and experience in the field of psychotherapy. Our nurse practitioner and consulting psychiatrist are available to provide prescription medication in conjunction with therapy.
We are extremely careful to protect the confidentiality of our records. The University Counseling Center record is available only to those professionals directly involved with the students’ care.
Information about UCC visits will not be disclosed without a students’ permission to any University official or faculty member, or to family, friends, or roommates except in very specific circumstances. Those circumstances are limited to instances when the students’ own life or that of another person is in danger.
