The psychologists and mental health experts provide brief counseling, assessment, referral, and crisis intervention services to currently enrolled University of Central Punjab students. There is no charge for our services. The Counseling Center is here to help students make their university experience better and enjoyable, both personally and academically.
The Counselling center offers counselling, support resources, referrals to private set ups and discussion groups to help students gain the skills and insights they need so that they can overcome adversities and flourish in their lives. Any student who has any concern they would like to discuss is welcome. Students can come to the Counselling center with concerns about their relationships, behaviours, their health, moods, traumas, motivation, stressors, or making life decisions. Meeting with a clinician will give the students a chance to explore their hopes and fears. They can determine possible developments of action or discipline in a respectful and a confidential setting.
Whatever the concerns are, a confidential conversation with a clinician would be a good place to start with. A clinician can help in sorting out situations and feelings, options, and resources that might be of great benefit to the students. A clinician can definitely help in locating and connecting with greatly suitable, inexpensive, available resources off campus, if the students require further support.
