Welcome to the MSU Denver Counseling Center


Balancing the demands of college life can be difficult. In addition to academic requirements, there are financial pressures, relationship issues, and job stressors that can leave you feeling beat up and worn out. The Counseling Center staff can help you find ways to manage difficult times and provide you with a comforting place to examine your life and learn more about yourself so you can realize your potential. Students are encouraged to make an appointment for their first visit.

Counseling Center Remote Services During Period of Limited Operations

In order to be compliant with the social distancing recommendations in mitigating the community spread of the Coronavirus, our Counseling Center staff has taken several steps to maintain professional connections with our clients.
 
Effective Tuesday, March 17th from 12:00 noon we will be operating remotely so that we can continue to provide therapeutic support to our current and prospective clients. If you already have a scheduled appointment in March or April, with one of our mental health clinicians, they will be reaching out to you through our telebehavioral platform. 
 
If you had been placed on our waitlist you will also be contacted so that we can offer support and resources for you.
 
New clients are always welcome and we will continue our Triage services for emergencies and crises. 
 
In order to connect with you remotely it is important that we have your Consent and an Informed Consent Form for Telebehavioral Treatment. A telebehavioral form will be sent to you by one of our mental health professionals. 
 
For any mental health-related concerns, please call 303-615-9902 and leave a message with your telephone number and 900 ID so that one of us can get back with you promptly, between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Monday-Friday. After 5:00 p.m., and on weekends and holidays, you may call our after-hours crisis line at 303-615-9911.
 
During this period of social isolation we realize the importance of human connection and healing, even more so. Our efforts continue to be focused on our students and clients in relationship with their families and communities of care.
