COVID-19 Symptoms

If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, dry cough, shortness of breath) or you believe you may have been exposed to the COVID-19 virus, please report your symptoms to your medical care provider and stay at home to avoid potentially spreading the disease or becoming more ill.

Counseling Center Appointments

Your first appointment at the Counseling Center is an initial consultation that will last 15-30 minutes where you will develop a personalized care plan with a case manager. Scheduled initial consultations for the spring semester will be primarily conducted through Zoom.

To schedule a Zoom tele-mental health session or for additional questions, please contact our office at 417-836-5116 or counselingcenter@missouristate.edu

For students who do not have access to a computer or smart phone to utilize Zoom, we are providing telephone counseling and/or face-to-face consultations.

If you are requesting an initial appointment, please contact us at 417-836-5116 or counselingcenter@missouristate.edu.

Ongoing Changes to Processes and Policies

Because the COVID situation across the US is a fluid, changing one, we also anticipate there may be updates and changes to the MSU Counseling Center processes and policies as needed to continue to create the safest possible conditions for students and employees. We will do our best to notify students in advance of any anticipated changes.

Thank you for your patience with us as we continue to navigate this national pandemic.

Sincerely,

The MSU Counseling Center Team
