Counseling Center Services - Fall 2021

If you experience a mental health emergency, contact 911, your local police, or local hospital emergency room for support.

The number one concern of the Ball State Counseling Center is the health and mental health of the Ball State community. Over the summer the Counseling Center developed a plan to provide face-to-face interventions using a hybrid model that includes both secure telehealth (meetings via video) and in-person services. However, with the mask mandate on campus we are planning to continue with telehealth as our primary modality for any face-to-face interventions. While we realize that many students would prefer to meet with a therapist in person, it is very difficult for us to do therapy with people who are wearing a mask because we can’t read their facial expressions. In-person therapy will still be available and may be offered in specific situations.

Once the mask mandate ends and it is safe to do so, we plan to return to the hybrid model that allows students to choose in-person or teletherapy. Outreach may be provided via either secure video (Zoom or other secure platform) or in person based on current campus safety guidelines and the type of outreach to ensure the safety of everyone involved. Many of our outreach services can be accessed from anywhere and our online resources are available 24 hours a day. Find more information (PDF) about our services. To request an appointment, students can:

  • Call Us: 765-285-1736

We know these are difficult times and a lot of things about coming to Ball State have changed, but the Counseling Center is here for you.
