Students Can Get Help with UHD Counseling Services

 

Students face a wide variety of issues during their academic careers that can leave them feeling overwhelmed, anxious, "bummed out," unmotivated, lost and more. To combat this, the UHD Counseling Services reminds students, faculty and staff that UHD students have five meetings with a professional on campus to help them cope with personal issues that may be affecting their academic performance.

Often, faculty or staff members observe signs of trouble with students and can make them aware of available counseling services. Signs of trouble include excessive absenteeism, leaving class early frequently, not turning in assignments on a regular basis, arguing with peers frequently, rarely talking to peers in class and having difficulty getting along during group projects.

There are two licensed professionals on campus from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday. (Sharlene Johnson, LPC, LCDC: Wednesday 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. and Scot Macomber, LPC: M,T, Th 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.) UHD Counseling Services is located in the Student Health Center, room N320, One Main Building.

To access these confidential services, students can call 713-500-3327 and schedule an appointment.
