The mission of Counseling Services is to promote student learning and development by providing counseling and referral services that address the need for retention-focused resources, and address the mental health care needs of Cincinnati State students.

Our services help students understand themselves and their difficulties, and ultimately make healthy choices for their lives. Services are provided in a nurturing environment where similarities and differences among people are recognized, respected, and honored.
Students with problems of a personal/emotional, social, career, or educational nature may use individual short-term counseling services (up to 10 sessions per semester) provided by professionally trained counselors and graduate student counseling interns.
On a voluntary basis, students may seek services that address issues such as anger, anxiety, depression, adjusting to college, self-esteem, family issues, grief and loss, depression, and/or interpersonal issues.
Offered to enrolled students to help students assess and overcome specific deficiencies in educational preparation or skills for success in college, including issues such as time management, test anxiety, study skills, balancing responsibilities, and developing strategies to deal with expectations found in college.
Crisis services assist students with personal/emotional concerns. Students will be seen as soon as possible. Consultation with counseling professionals should provide opportunities for students to explore the nature of the crises and identify appropriate alternatives for resolution.
