ASU Counseling Services provides preventive and educational interventions through consultation, outreach programming, and workshops. These interventions are designed to:

  1. support and enhance the learning environment for students at ASU


  2. facilitate learning by students through psycho-educational presentations aimed at minimizing, preventing, or intervening in psychological concerns that may affect academic progress.

ASU Counseling Services also partners with, and provides referrals to, programming offered by other ASU entities that offer workshops and presentations on topics such as sexual violence prevention, substance use/abuse, eating disorders and body image concerns, and sexuality.


ASU Counseling Services provides leadership in promoting positive systems change and growth within the ASU community. The staff at ASU Counseling Services has liaison relationships with a number of university agencies, departments, and student organizations. Counseling staff interacts with parents, faculty, and staff who are concerned about the well-being of an ASU student. Examples include concerns about students exhibiting a decline in academic functioning, displaying unusual behavior, or presenting safety concerns on campus, in a residence hall, or in a classroom.

In situations in which multiple students experience a traumatic event, ASU Counseling Services staff is available to meet and assist individuals as well as to provide any needed follow-up mental health services. Consultation services are provided at no charge.

See the ASU Counseling Services website for detailed information on services provided.
