Counseling Services

The Mission of Cincinnati State Counseling Services

TO promote student learning and development by providing personal counseling and referral services that encourage mental, emotional, and social wellness of Cincinnati State students. 

Counseling Services include: 

Personal Counseling:  Enrolled students may take advantage of free, one-on-one, short-term counseling to help navigate and cope with personal and emotional challenges that may be interfering with school, relationships, and other responsibilities.   

Campus and Community Referral: Available to students who may need access to community resources. Not every student concern is necessarily served best by the College’s Counseling Services. If it is determined that a student may be better served through other resources, the student is referred to a related on-campus service or to a community resource or agency. 

Consultation and Assessment:  Available to students, faculty, and administrators. Counseling Services provide help in identifying a student’s needs, appropriate campus services, and possible referral for community resources.
