Individual and Group Counseling

Free short-term counseling is available to Susquehanna University students. Eighty-seven percent of our clients are seen 15 sessions or fewer. We've recently expanded our group counseling to include support groups for anxiety, first-year students and students of color.

Clients requiring longer-term counseling and clients who wish to pursue counseling outside of the university are referred to local clinicians and are responsible for the charges.

Crisis Services

In case of an emergency, call 570-372-4751 or visit the Counseling Center and request a same-day appointment. During evenings and weekends, an on-call counselor can be reached by calling 570-374-9164. 

Alcohol and Other Drug Counseling

We provide alcohol and other drug assessment, referrals to off-campus providers, Think About It, an online interactive tool for self-assessment and education, and the Alcohol and Skills Training class for students mandated by the Student Conduct Board. For more information, contact Cheryl Stumpf at 570-372-4751.

Recognizing and Assisting Emotionally Troubled Students

If someone has turned to you for help, or you see that a person you care about needs help, check out these guidelines. They're meant to help you recognize, intervene and refer emotionally troubled students to the Counseling Center. Sometimes the issues that students present might also warrant a referral to the Office of the Chaplain.  

Outreach

The Counseling Center offers a variety of programs throughout the academic year to help students cope with issues such as alcohol and drug abuse, stress management, positive psychology, and diversity. Our peer educators are involved in developing and implementing many of our educational and outreach programs. If you are interested in becoming a peer educator, call Cheryl Stumpf at 570-372-4732.  

Self-Help and Self-Assessment

The Counseling Center advocates for good mental health. Stop in to our house to relax and re-charge. Spend a few minutes in our massage chair, put up your feet or browse through our library. You'll find a wide variety of helpful resources and tools that you can use on your own, as well as valuable online resources, available through mySU. 



Being in college is stressful. Friends and professors may be the first ones to notice signs that a student is struggling, such as:

  • Change in academic performance
  • Lateness and excessive absences from class
  • Withdrawing from activities they used to enjoy
  • Increased anxiety about classwork
  • Changes in emotional state such as crying, lethargy, irritability, etc.
  • Changes in physical state such as swollen eyes, increased sickness, poor hygiene, weight loss or gain, falling asleep in class, etc.
  • Preoccupation with death or dying

You can help! Visit or call the Counseling Center to get tips on how to talk with friends and encourage them to seek help.
If you're worried about their immediate safety, please call 911.

Confidentiality is extremely important to us, so you can trust that the information you share with us will be kept in strict confidence.

According to state laws, we cannot release information, including whether you are a client, to parents, resident assistants, instructors or physicians without your written consent.  However, there are some situations in which we are legally obligated to take action to you or protect others from harm or shield a minor from abuse. 

Interested in going into the mental health profession? Develop practical skills to put on your resume by working for the Counseling Center!

Our peer educators promoting the mission for the Counseling Center by assisting with events, running workshops and staffing tables.  

Student Wellness & Ease of Tension Suite

Come de-stress in our S.W.E.E.T Suite! You can use the S.W.E.E.T. Suite and take advantage of a massage, coloring books, bubbles, a sun light for the winter blues, waterfalls and bio-feedback. Call over or drop in to see if the room is available.
