Introducing Drop-In Hours—Increased Access to Counseling Center Counselors

The Counseling Center is now offering Drop-In Hours every weekday, allowing students to drop-in at their convenience and meet with a counselor for a consultation. These drop-in consultations enable students to meet with a mental health professional when they need to talk about an issue in a safe and confidential space, when they need some support or when it best fits their schedule.

The Counseling Center is here to help!

The Counseling Center provides a safe, confidential, nonjudgmental space where students can feel free to explore a wide variety of concerns and issues. We offer a wide variety of services to assist students including drop-in hours, workshops, group therapy, brief individual therapy, couples counseling, psychiatric evaluations and medication management, substance use assessments, eating assessments, and 24/7 crisis intervention services. These services are available to all eligible Homewood and Peabody undergraduate and graduate students. All counseling services are offered free of charge to students. In addition, self-help resources are available to assist students in understanding and addressing common concerns.

The Counseling Center workshops and outreach programs are designed to help students learn to better manage their stress and develop lifelong health and wellness skills. Counseling Center staff members are also available to consult with concerned faculty, staff, parents and/or students who are looking for guidance about how to handle a mental health issue involving a JHU student.

The Counseling Center staff is committed to enhancing the well-being and personal development of all JHU students. We strive to be sensitive to the diverse needs of our student body and specialize in treating the mental health concerns that are prevalent in a diverse university population. Our goal is to assist students in addressing the difficulties they encounter, empowering them to make the most of their educational opportunities.

If you feel that you or someone you know could profit from our services, please call our office. We will either provide the help that you need or help you find someone who can.
