UPDATES

We are currently working on updating our website, please bear with us!

WE ARE STILL HERE FOR YOU. The UCC has temporarily suspended all in person services due to the COVID-19 pandemic, however, we remain committed to supporting the mental health and emotional needs of our campus community during these challenging times. Counselors and psychiatrists continue to provide clinical services virtually from 8am-5pm (CST), Monday to Friday. This includes counseling intakes, individual counseling, group counseling, crisis intervention, and psychiatry appointments. If you are experiencing a mental health emergency during our non-business hours, please contact 911 or go to your local emergency room.

Psychological Assessment: We are committed to keeping our clients, staff, and community as safe as possible during the COVID-19 pandemic, therefore, due to the 1:1 close proximity required for psychological assessment, testing services have been indefinitely suspended until it is deemed safe enough to do so. If you require psychological testing during this time, we recommend seeking community providers who may be able to provide services during this time.

STATEMENT ON DIVERSITY, INCLUSION AND JUSTICE

The UCC is committed to providing culturally sensitive services to all members of our OU campus. We acknowledge that race/ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, religious/spiritual beliefs, socio-economic status, and culture can impact an individual’s health and influence an individual’s choices related to healthcare services. We recognize that systematic inequality, oppression, and injustice continue to exist and have a negative impact on the psychological well being of our community. Thus, we aim to be sensitive to the diverse needs of our campus members, and commit to creating an environment that values each unique individual, and to treating our clients with respect and compassion. We endeavor to provide services and programs that are inclusive and provide a safe place to be heard and accepted.
