The UAB Counseling & Wellness Center cannot provide counseling for people who are seriously mentally ill. This includes students with acute or chronic clinical conditions or those needing specialized services.
When we are not able to provide services, the Counseling & Wellness Center will offer confidential referrals to other UAB and community agencies.
We do not offer formal clinical diagnostic evaluations, nor do we dispense any medications.
Doctoral and masters-level interns are employed at the Counseling & Wellness Center to help provide health and counseling services.
It would be unethical for us to counsel students who are actively involved in personal counseling elsewhere.
We provide personal counseling and other services to any UAB student without regard to gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, or national origin.
