Services Offered

The CU Denver Student and Community Counseling Center (SCCC) is available to all enrolled CU Denver students. The counseling center provides strength-based culturally responsive mental health services focused on relationship, support, growth, and solutions. The SCCC uses a brief, goal-directed counseling model that helps students achieve their academic and personal goals. There are no fees for counseling sessions. We also offer an array of other services, such as group therapy, drop-in workshops, and wellness-promotion activities. 

The counseling center welcomes all CU Denver students seeking assistance, however the SCCC is not able to provide specialized, more intensive, or long-term clinical services.  Some examples include services that are required for treatment of acute eating disorders, serious substance abuse/dependence, or acute symptoms that require hospitalization. The SCCC is not able to provide specialized assessments such as child custody evaluations or forensic assessments.  If you are seeking long-term treatment or other services beyond the scope of services that the SCCC is able to provide, it is recommended that you receive care by an outside specialist. You can contact us for a list of referrals in the Denver Metro area. If you are unsure whether or not your specific mental health care needs are covered by the counseling center, please contact us and ask to speak with the “on-call counselor” or schedule a consultation appointment with us.
