Mental Health for college students: more important than ever

Update | Tuesday, April 19, 2022

Anxiety and stress may increase for our students as final exams approach. Counseling is available free of charge to Columbus State students. Counseling Services is located in Eibling Hall 101. The department partners with Accessibility and Testing Services to expand service hours and better support students.

And counselors will connect in any way that the student prefers: in-person, on Zoom, on the phone, live chat, email, or text. What’s more, the College has a new partnership with Uwill, a virtual teletherapy service with free access to a network of counselors. Through Uwill, students have access to counselors with a variety of specialties and life experiences, including racially minoritized and LGBTQ+ counselors. Students should contact to find out more about Uwill.

In the meantime, students can check out these tips to maintain good mental health ahead of Finals Week.|

Columbus Campus and Regional Learning Centers (RLC’s) 
Counseling Services can be reached at or 614-287-2818. They have added a phone prompt "2," which directly transfers callers to Netcare Access, a 24/7 local crisis center. If you are having a mental health crisis and need to speak to a counselor immediately, remember to press 2. That’s important after hours or when the College is on break and counselors are not in the office.

Counseling Services offers in-person and virtual services every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Virtual-only services are provided each Monday and Friday. In addition, some counselors offer weekend and evening sessions. 

Delaware Campus
Counselor Shelbey Mitchell is available Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. In-person appointments are available. Students may schedule appointments using the Online Referral Form for Delaware Campus. You may contact Mitchell at
