Welcome to the Counseling Center

COVID-19 Counseling Center Update

The Counseling Center is currently making every effort to contact each client who has an appointment scheduled during the remainder of the semester (appointments are currently scheduled out through the 2nd week of April). Clients are being offered the following options: 1) Clients who wish to continue services will be required to transition their appointments to telephone sessions, as long as they are still within the state of Georgia, or 2) if the client is not interested in continuing services, has completed their treatment goals, or is now residing outside of Georgia, referral resources can be provided. Additionally, all scheduled intake appointments will be converted to a one-time consultation session, with the purpose of identifying immediate needs and connecting students with support resources and referrals. 


All students are reminded that the Counseling Center maintains 24/7 mental health emergency access. If you are experiencing a mental health emergency, please contact one of the following:

-Call the Counseling Center (229) 333-5940 at any time. Counseling staff will be available from 10am and 2pm M-F for emergency phone services. At all other times, phone calls will be automatically directed to a FoneMed on-call Triage nurse for emergency services.
