With the recent passing of Robin Williams, a man who brought light and laughter to millions but was deeply troubled himself, it’s important to recognize that attending college can be a huge stressor and one may find themselves feeling overwhelmed and depressed at times.
Did you know that UB has a Counseling Center? Located in the lower level of the Academic Center, Room 111, they offer individual counseling, group counseling, psychiatric referrals, stress management, grief peer support, outreach programs, and crisis intervention.
Free to all students, the Counseling Center is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 am until 5:30 pm. Walk in visits are available to first visitors at the times listed below. Services are paid for through student fees and entitle every enrolled student a maximum of ten (10) sessions per academic year.
They will see students immediately in emergent situations, but remember you can also dial 9-1-1, the UB Police Department at (410) 837-5520 or #4444 on campus, report to your nearest hospital (the closest of which to campus is the University of Maryland Medical Center Midtown Campus, located at 827 Linden Avenue, Baltimore, MD 21201), or contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (1-800-273-8255).
