    Mission Statement

    In conjunction with the Student Life mission to facilitate meaningful engagement and transformation, the Office of Counseling Services at HSU seeks to promote holistic wellness by:

    • Providing Counseling, Consultation, Training, Prevention, and Education;
    • Collaborating with students, staff, and faculty to ensure the richest care possible;
    • Creating a supportive context to foster emotional, spiritual, relational, physical, and academic formation; and
    • Enhancing community health by developing a deeper love for self and others.

    Individual Counseling

    The HSU Counseling Department provides consultation, evaluation, support, and short-term counseling for students who are facing issues impacting their well-being. Our focus involves crisis intervention and stabilization, as well as traditional psychotherapy within a wide range of therapeutic approaches.

    All full or part-time students are eligible to receive free, confidential, and voluntary counseling services at HSU, though not all students will qualify to see one of our University Counselors. Eligibility is determined by severity of need. Stop by, email, or call our office at (325) 671-2272 for an assessment and appointment. If you do not qualify to receive counseling with the campus counselor, you will be referred to HSU Psychology and Counseling Center or other appropriate community resources.

    If you have further questions, please email the Office of Counseling Services at counseling@hsutx.edu or visit our FAQs page.

    Intake Forms

    All students will need to review, complete and submit an Intake Form to receive services. You may only access the Intake Form on the HSU Network.
