Counseling and Referral Services provides a wide range of services that meets the mental health and student development needs of MUIH students. We don’t simply understand those needs in terms of individual students. We also recognize the importance of addressing the life issues of particular student communities and the campus community, overall.

In terms of individual clinical issues, we provide short-term counseling for students whose concerns range from the normal challenges of everyday life to more disruptive psychological concerns to concerns about friends or family members.

We Provide

The Student Counseling Center offers free, confidential, short-term individual counseling, consultations, weekly groups sessions, and referral services.

We Do Not Provide

Counseling and Referral Services does not provide educational assessments; assessments and documentation for emotional support animals or service animals; one-time assessments for accommodations or study abroad evaluations; or long-term psychotherapy, therapy occurring more than one time per week, or therapy for disorders that warrant specialized treatment, or co-current therapy.

Community Mental Health Services

It is recommended that current and prospective students in need of ongoing, long-term mental health support (including psychiatric medications) familiarize themselves with their insurance benefits, particularly with regards to authorization of ongoing mental health services in the state of Maryland.
