Meeting the Mental Health Needs of Texas Tech Students

As the primary student mental health clinic on campus, the Student Counseling Center provides a safe environment for students to explore issues of concern, resolve psychological distress, and maximize their potential at Texas Tech University. We seek to offer the highest standard of care as we provide a wide range of different services for students. Check out the rest of our website to find out how we can help you!

Resources for living in a traumatic world

The world today can feel complex, overwhelming, and even scary. The current political climate has recently been characterized by anger, divisiveness, and a lack of mutual understanding, and many of our students have been directly impacted by recent political decisions in ways that have left them questioning the safety of themselves and those that they love. At the Student Counseling Center we raise our voices in speaking out against the violence, prejudice, and discrimination that we see in our society today. We also acknowledge that discrimination and prejudice do not always take the forms of overt violence, and we recognize that having to cope with more subtle microaggressions is a painful reality for too many in our diverse community. We seek to be seen as a safe place within the Texas Tech campus for anyone who feels marginalized, oppressed, or unsafe. We encourage any student who has been negatively impacted by oppression to consider speaking with one of our counselors during our Walk-In hours so that we can help.

Listed below are some resources that can be helpful in creating understanding, promoting healing, and fostering inclusivity.

Student Counseling Center Walk-In Clinic

No scheduled appointment necessary to initiate services! Walk in to the SCC, fill out paperwork (this process takes about 30 minutes), and see a counselor for an initial intake for approximately another 30 minutes. For more details see the How To Get Started page.
