Counseling Services for military veterans

Student News | Tuesday, September 7, 2021

Columbus State’s Counseling Services wants the College community to know that free assistance is available for any military veterans who may be struggling with recent events in Afghanistan. Serving our country can lead to many different thoughts and feelings that they may still be processing. In addition, anxiety, depression, lack of sleep, and previous trauma can impact academic performance. 

Counseling Services is here to help any military veterans struggling with mental health. Appointments may be set up by dialing 614-287-2818 or emailing Counseling Services is offering both in-person and virtual appointments. In case of an emergency, the Veteran Crisis Line can be accessed at any time by dialing 1-800-273-8255 and then pressing 1. 

The Counseling Services homepage has information available for veterans by following the link listed under Self-Help Resources.  

Columbus State’s Military & Veterans Services has additional resources. They can be reached at 614-287-2544 or emailing

The bottom line: support is available if you want it. Even if none of these resources appeal to you – get help. Talk about it with someone, try something new. If you are struggling, the worst thing you can do is nothing. Don’t be afraid to lean on your Veteran community. Contact the Veterans Crisis Line, or consider reaching out to the VA if you would like to learn more about what is available. We’re here for you.
