All first consultations can now be scheduled through the ASU Health Portal

Students have told us that they prefer to have an online way to schedule their initial consult; we’ve heard you. We open same day consultations, every day of the week on the My Health Portal. If you do not want to schedule online, you may call 480-965-6146 for an appointment.

We are coming to you, where you connect with your peers

We have increased our capacity to work with student organizations and clubs to create connection and support for student communities to talk about emotional well-being and mental health. If you are a member of a student club or organization and want to connect with ASU Counseling Services, please email Caroline Monica.

Parents, faculty and staff consultation with an ASU Counseling staff member

We understand that parents, faculty, and staff may want to speak with a counselor to think through how to best support a student. Give us a call at 480-965-6146, we have counselors available for consultation.

Our focus is on access. We will help you connect with ongoing next steps if that is what you need or want.

As always, our individual therapy services are time-limited and we will support students in finding the ongoing services they need on or off campus depending on needs and resources. We will always focus on making sure you can access a counselor to consult and problem solve any issue. We are expanding our connection to student communities to ensure we can make the largest impact on the most people. We have a number of on-campus and tele-mental health supports for students impacted by COVID-19, by trauma and by grief. When you talk to us, we will help students think through ongoing mental needs, and ensure we stay connected with students while we enact the plan for care.

ASU Counseling Services are for any Sun Devil, regardless of your race, gender, sexual orientation, age, student status, religion, ability, size, financial situation, the issue you're dealing with or whether you've had counseling before. Something as simple as talking to someone can help you feel better, improve your grades and manage stress.



Peer-led discussion and support

Devils 4 Devils Community Circles

Devils 4 Devils Community Circles

The Devils 4 Devils Community Circle is a peer-led, peer-based, online platform for students to support and connect with each other while taking online classes and practicing social distancing.  Through Zoom, students will meet to describe their experiences with digital learning and remote relationships, learn how other students are responding to these changes and receive understanding, helpful information and suggestions. 

Devils 4 Devils Community Circle Zoom sessions will be hosted by a Devils 4 Devils student facilitator.  All students who participate in a community circle will be provided with information on how to access ASU Counseling Services for therapeutic needs.
