Counseling Center at the Downtown Campus
The Counseling Center is pleased to announce the availability of services at the downtown campus. These services include initial appointments, counseling sessions, and, as available, walk-in appointments. A psychologist will be downtown in room 447 on Thursdays from 2:00pm to 5:00pm. Requests for services should still be made through the central office on the main campus (312-808-7132) and any changes in scheduling or calls regarding emergency situations should also continue to go through that number and the main campus office.

Because the number of hours is limited, several conditions will apply. Sessions should be used primarily by students who believe their counseling will be short in durationóless than 10 sessions. (Sessions are usually 45-50 minutes.) In addition, if a student twice misses an appointment without prior notification to the Counseling Center or cancels with less than 24 hours notice, the services will be transferred to the main campus. These rules are needed to ensure that the downtown services are available to a reasonable number of law and business school students.

The Counseling Center offers professional services by psychologists with doctorates and, on the main campus, a psychiatrist for medication. Students use our services for a wide range of concerns, from study skills, procrastination, and career concerns; to relationship problems and self esteem; and to depression, anxiety, substance use, and suicidality. In any given situation, students may be referred to the main campus for services to provide an appropriate type and level of care. As always, confidentiality is a cornerstone of psychological services. For more information about the Counseling Center, please visit www.iit.edu/~cc/.

Please direct all questions to the Counseling Center at 312-808-7132.
