Mission

It is the mission of the Counseling Department to promote the personal development and psychological well-being of all students, and to provide an environment that is conducive to growth and learning.

Free and confidential short-term counseling is available for Fayette Campus students seeking help with personal, social or emotional issues.

What Is Counseling?

Counseling is designed to help you identify behaviors or ways of thinking that are interfering with your happiness and/or ability to function, and to guide you in making the necessary changes to fulfill your personal goals.

Client Rights

As a client, you should be aware that you have the following rights:

  • Every client has the right to be treated with respect and dignity as a human being.
  • Every client has the right to self-determination and self-development.
  • Every client has the right of choice and responsibility for decisions reached.
  • Every client has the right to know the risks and benefits of counseling procedures.
  • Every client has the right to access their counseling file by submitting their request in writing.
  • Every client has the right to be informed about any tape recording or video taping of counseling sessions.
  • Every client has the right to refuse services.
  • Every client has the right to terminate services at any time without just cause.
  • Every client has the right to refuse to participate in experimental research.
  • Every client has the right to file a complaint with the Director of Counseling and/or the Dean of Student Development.
  • Every client has the right to be fully informed of all services provided by this counseling service and the cost of any referral sources.
  • Every client has the right to voluntarily participate in the counseling process.

Confidentiality

The law protects the privacy of all communications between a client and a mental health professional. In most situations, Counseling Services can only release information about your treatment to others if you sign a written authorization form that meets certain legal requirements.

If you and your counselor agree that it would be beneficial for your counselor to share confidential information about your treatment with someone else, your counselor will prepare an authorization form for your signature.

In some situations, no authorization to release confidential information about a client’s treatment is required by law or ethical standards. In these situations, the counselor may release information without the client’s permission. Information sharing within Counseling Services for clinical and administrative purposes is routine.

COVID-19 Resources

Resources for up-to-date and accurate information on COVID-19 and how to deal with some of the stress and anxiety you may be feeling.

Crisis Services

Information about mental health crises, sexual assault and local area crisis resources.

Online Resources

Need information on a topic but not sure where to look? Our online resources page provides links on a large number of  topics.

Veterans & Military Members

Whether you are a veteran or an active duty military service member, being a college student offers some unique challenges. Counseling and Wellness Services is here to offer resource information, referral information and support in navigating the world of higher education. Please stop in, send an email, or visit UIU’s Military and Veterans Service Center to learn how we can support you! Please see our Online Resources page and the links that support Vets and Active Duty Military.

Resources for Parents

UIU Counseling Services is available as a resource for parents who have a concern about their student. Please contact the Director of Counseling and Wellness Services at 563-425-5786; the director of counseling will assist you and problem-solve concerns within the limits of confidentiality. Please note that the director of counseling is limited by law as to what information can be shared with you if a release of information has not been completed.

The Jed Foundation

The Jed Foundation, a nonprofit organization working to prevent suicide and promote mental health among college students, offers excellent suggestions in an article called “Protecting Your Child’s Mental Health: What Parents Can Do.”
