COVID-19 UPDATE REGARDING SERVICES

 

WE ARE STILL HERE FOR YOU

 

It just looks different right now.

 

The Marquette University Counseling Center remains committed to supporting students’ emotional well-being and resilience. In accordance with university policies and procedures and public health guidance to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19, the Counseling Center is implementing the following temporary changes to service. These changes are supported by evidence-based delivery of counseling and ethical and legal guidelines.

 

The Counseling Center will provide mental health services primarily through secure videoconferencing for our students who reside on campus, near campus and those taking classes remotely but residing in Wisconsin. (Note: If you are currently taking all remote classes and reside outside Wisconsin, call us and we can assist you in finding referrals to community providers where you are.)

 

Students can make appointments by calling our main phone line at (414) 288-7172 during regular business hours, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Those with urgent requests will be able to talk to a counselor immediately; less urgent concerns will be scheduled for a “quick access” contact either the same day or the following day. Walk-in services are currently suspended but we plan to resume them as soon as it is safe to do so.

 

For students with pressing mental health needs, crisis services remain available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year for mental health emergencies:

 

Additionally, trained professional staff members are available during regular business hours to take phone calls from students, faculty, staff and others who have urgent requests and needs. Walk-in services are currently suspended but we plan to resume them as soon as it is safe to do so.

                                                             

 

If you are worried about someone else’s safety and want to know how to help them, please call us to consult. For some circumstances, an in-person visit may be indicated following an initial phone screen,  but the visit must follow university policies and health department guidance. For students who need longer term, specialized treatment, referrals will be made to clinicians in the community; options are largely driven by insurance, but we have an updated list of community clinics and clinicians we can recommend. We can also help find referrals for those with limited or no insurance or who desire out-of-pocket options.

 

Please check this website regularly or follow us on social media for more information and the latest updates and other helpful content. This fall, we will be partnering with a company to provide new web- and app-based content for managing stress, anxiety, depression and other mental health concerns.

 

We are also exploring virtual groups and workshops virtually to practice physical distancing but also to be together in meaningful ways to protect our physical and mental health.

 

We are prepared to pivot as pandemic-related information and guidance changes, and we are exploring ways to provide support to students if and when the university moves again to a fully remote learning environment.

 

We want to hear from you! If you have any questions about how the Counseling Center can help you, please call us at (414) 288-7172.

 

Take good care!

STATEMENT ON RACIAL INJUSTICE AND VIOLENCE

 

We at MUCC want to express how incredibly sad, upset and angry we are after the most recent events in Kenosha earlier this week. We are sad about the ongoing anti-Black violence and having to witness yet another example of racial injustice, the shooting of Jacob Blake. We recognize, in particular, that this incident may have impacted your own community, as it is happening in our own state of Wisconsin. 

 

To our MU students, and in particular, to our students in the Black community, our hearts go out to you and we stand in solidarity with you. Given all of the emotions you may be feeling, we encourage you to take care of yourself and to reach out to MUCC if you are in need of additional support and space to process your reactions.

 

You can call us at 414-288-7172, Monday through Friday from 8 am until 4 pm. If you are struggling and experiencing a mental health emergency after our business hours, please call MUPD to access our after hours counselor.
