It can be difficult when your child goes to college to help support them with their mental health. We’re here to help.

Many students enter the UMKC community already receiving mental health services. Although maintaining treatment with the existing provider is usually preferable, any student is eligible to transition their mental health care to UMKC Counseling Services. Our office will assess the student’s needs to determine whether or not we are able to adequately provide the appropriate level of care. Students are encouraged to inform UMKC Counseling Services of any needs related to the transition of mental health care early in the semester.
