Welcome to Counseling Services
Dealing with depression, exploring relationship issues, adjusting to college life, working through life transitions, and developing study skills are common concerns among college students. Our professional counselors are trained to assist students, as well as faculty and staff, in examining and resolving these and other difficulties that might interfere with educational and personal success. The counselors offer individual, couple, family and group counseling as well as consultations and crisis intervention. These services are free and confidential.
Length of therapy varies, with a primary focus on short-term treatment directed at helping students function in a college environment. We do not have the capacity to manage chronic conditions requiring intensive or frequent contacts. If this short-term care model will not adequately meet students’ needs, your counselor will discuss referral resources.

Dealing with stress, exploring relationship issues, adjusting to college life, and developing effective study skills are common concerns among college students of all ages. The wide range of services offered by Casper College Counseling Services can assist students, faculty, and staff in resolving these and other difficulties that might interfere with educational and personal success. We provide the following personal counseling services to the Casper College Community:

- Mental Health Screenings - For depression, eating disorders, and alcohol abuse
- Crisis Intervention - To assist people in immediate and severe difficulty, helping them to use their problem-solving and stress management skills to regain a sense of control
Due to the sensitive nature of this work, all personal counseling services are confidential. Nothing shared with your counselor is disclosed to anyone outside of Counseling Services without your consent (except in situations indicating imminent danger of serious harm to yourself or others, current child abuse, or dependent adult abuse). All counselors are bound, both ethically and legally, to maintain confidentiality.
Counseling Services believes in the importance of continuing education for professionals, students and interested community members about psychological and health related issues. Each spring we sponsor the annual Wellness Conference. The Wellness Conference allows professionals and experts in the Rocky Mountain Region to come together and share their expertise.
The Wellness Conference consists of several mini-courses presented by professionals in the community. These mini-courses are FREE to the public. The last day of the Wellness Conference, a workshop for professionals is presented and a small fee is required to attend this workshop. If you are interested in presenting at or attending, please contact Teresa Wallace.
This year's Wellness Conference will be held: April 9-11, 2014
