Center for Counseling and Student Development Services
The Center for Counseling and Student Development (CCSD) provides individual and group counseling to thousands of UD students each year. All counseling services are covered by the UD Wellbeing Fee for full-time students. Part-time students also can elect to pay this fee to access the same care.
All counseling services begin with a triage appointment to determine the services that are right for your needs. If you are a new client, stop by our front desk during business hours, 8:30 a.m.–4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, to get started with us! Returning clients can call to schedule an appointment. Last appointments will be taken at 4 p.m.
Access 24/7 Crisis Care
Immediate virtual mental health support is available through TimelyCare's TalkNow service: 24/7, on-demand emotional support to talk about anything, including anxiety, relationships, depression and school-related stressors.
Mental health professionals are available 24 hours per day, seven days per week and 365 days per year. Students are encouraged to call for help when in distress, feeling overwhelmed, or needing the assistance of a mental health professional.
Dial 911 if you have an emergency
