Student Counseling Services

Mental health and wellness services for students

Emotional distress, relationship difficulties and personal concerns can make it very difficult to perform well and achieve your academic goals. Counseling and therapy enable you to understand and deal with those issues, freeing you to make clearer and healthier decisions. You can use counseling to explore personal problems in your life including anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts, relationship problems, anger, addictions, and many other difficulties that may cause stress and disrupt your life.

Counseling services are available to currently registered NEIU students. We provide time-limited treatment and the number of individual or couples therapy sessions are determined in collaboration with the therapist. Group counseling services are available to Northeastern students without session limits. Discuss details of this policy with your counselor.
