Health & Counseling Center services are available to all currently enrolled UNC Asheville students. It offers medical, counseling, and psychiatric services and can be accessed through appointments. Although we strive to accommodate student schedules, we generally operate on an appointment basis. Emergency services are available for students in distress.
Our medical providers in Health Services are available to assist you with various illnesses and injuries. Office visits and medical examinations are free of charge. Small fees are required for laboratory services, medications and minor surgical procedures.
Our mental health professionals in Counseling Services are available for short-term, goal-oriented individual counseling appointments and often design various group counseling experiences depending on demand for services. We see students for a wide variety of issues including but not limited to anxiety, depression, substance use/abuse, anger, bipolar disorder, relationship issues, and self-awareness. Individual counseling appointments are usually 50 minutes in length. Our center works from a solution-focused, brief counseling model due to high demand for services. Sometimes issues come up that cannot be satisfactorily addressed within this model and are outside the scope of our services. Together, you and your counselor may explore finding an off-campus resource for more appropriate intensive or longer-term ongoing care.
