Counseling and Support

College and campus-wide mental health resources are available to students, faculty, and staff.

As a community of scholars, leaders, learners, and practitioners, the College of Education is committed to advancing efforts that lead to safer and healthier communities for children and adults.

College-based Counseling

Danie White is our Counselor in Academic Residence (CARE). She is available to meet with you if you need mental health assistance. Call 512-232-6862 and ask to schedule a CARE appointment. Please include your name, EID, and contact number should you need to leave a voicemail.  Students may also contact the Counseling and Mental Health Center (CMHC), (512) 471-3515, and ask to be scheduled with CARE Counselor Danie White directly. 

Contacting the main office is the quickest way to schedule since everyone is working remotely and checking voicemail systems remotely may delay scheduling. In-person office hours for CARE counseling are set to resume when staff return to campus.

All services are confidential and no information will be shared without written consent.
