The SHSU Counseling Center staff understands that life doesn’t stop just because you’re enrolled in college. It can be hard to care about going to class if you’re struggling with depression or anxiety. Or maybe you’re having a hard time studying because of a relationship problem. You might even be questioning why you came to college in the first place. Whatever problems you’re facing, the Counseling Center can help students get back on track. The center offers individual and couples counseling, as well as a range of therapy groups. Services are free to currently enrolled students, and sessions are completely confidential.
