Counseling services are available to provide support to students who are experiencing stress, personal problems, or who are seeking to better understand themselves. Counselors are based in Juneau, but can serve all UAS students regardless of location. A professional clinical counselor can also provide screening for mental illness, along with follow up support. Mental health crisis intervention is available for students Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. For crises after hours and on weekends services are available by calling 911 or your local hospital or clinic. There is also a 24 hour crisis/suicide prevention number, 1-877-266-4357.
Any students who are enrolled in credit courses for the current semester are eligible. Students may have up to twelve counseling sessions per year. If specialized or additional sessions are needed, community referrals will be provided.
