Welcome to Student Counseling Services

Student Counseling Services offers support services for UNA students to help in the development of coping skills to manage problems that may be affecting their health, well-being, and/or academic performance. Counselors are available for assessment of needs/problems, short-term counseling, group presentations, crisis intervention, and facilitation of referrals for students.

Faculty, staff, or parents who are concerned about a student should call 256-765-5215 for consultation with a counselor or to arrange a referral appointment.

Student Counseling Services promotes lifelong development by providing an inclusive environment for students to explore their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors with others experiencing similar life events. This allows students to become engaged with one another while addressing their overall health and wellness, which aids in their lifelong development as individuals as they integrate into their respective communities.

All students, staff & faculty, both vaccinated and unvaccinated, are temporarily required to wear a mask in all public indoor spaces on campus and aboard any University transportation.
