The time you spend at OSUIT will be full of productive and enjoyable experiences as you learn new things and gain new skills. During this time of growth and transition, students sometimes experience personal issues that interfere with their educational and personal goals. Through the counseling process, students can develop the skills needed to help cope with personal problems. Students often seek personal counseling services for the following reasons:

  • problems with relationships
  • self-esteem issues
  • depression
  • stress
  • anxiety
  • suicidal thoughts
  • crisis intervention

If you have trouble with any of these or other emotional problems, seeking counseling is one way to help yourself manage your life issues.

Things to Remember

  • Counseling services are free to OSUIT students.  If the difficulty in question is beyond our resources (for instance, an academic difficulty that could best be helped by tutoring or a problem that deserves more intensive therapy than we can provide), we can refer you to other sources of help.
  • Appointments are available by calling or emailing the counseling office. NOTE: Walk-ins are welcome, but keep in mind that the counselor may be in session or have another obligation at the time of your visit. 
  • Counseling sessions are confidential with a few exceptions which include a court order, health and safety emergencies such as imminent danger to oneself or others, and child or elder abuse.
  • OSUIT counselors do not: Prescribe Medications; Diagnose Mental Illness; or Perform Long-Term Therapy.  For serious mental health issues, referrals are made to community resources.
