Counseling for Faculty/Staff
Although the Counseling Center's primary mission is to provide assistance to UMD's full-time students, the Center does provide limited consultation and referral services to faculty and staff members. All faculty and staff can be seen for an initial evaluation session or "Intake." During the Intake the counselor will talk with you about your current concerns, suggest treatment options that might be helpful to you, and recommend possible community-based referrals.
