Counseling and Mental Health Center

The mission of the Counseling and Mental Health Center is to promote and restore the psychological and emotional health and well-being of TCU students so they may realize their full potential at TCU. The center's staff of licensed mental health professionals provides respectful, confidential and effective services to students with any personal, psychological or academic concern. There is no charge for services. The Counseling and Mental Health Center provides:

  • Short-term individual counseling for personal, emotional and psychological concerns
  • Group counseling for personal growth and support
  • Psychiatric assessment for medication and follow-up
  • Crisis intervention
  • 24/7 Counseling Help Line (817.257.7233)
  • Assessment and off-campus referrals for students with longer-term or specialty care needs
  • Consultation to any person who is concerned about the welfare of a student;
  • Suicide prevention training
  • Educational outreach programs to residence halls, classes, and campus organizations, and mental health workshops and awareness events

The Counseling and Mental Health Center is located on the garden level of Samuelson Hall. Hours during the academic year are Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday 8 a.m.-8 p.m. and Thursday and Friday 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Summer hours are 8 a.m.-5 p.m. To eliminate waiting for a first appointment, all first-time visits are through the walk-In clinic, every day 10 a.m.-11:30 a.m. and 1–3 p.m. If your schedule does not allow these hours, call the office to arrange a first appointment. See counseling.tcu.edu for more information.

Note: Psychiatric services are available to students who are being counseled in the Counseling and Mental Health Center. Students wanting medications only may be referred to off-campus providers.
