How to Make an Appointment

Call (309) 438-3655 or stop by room 320 of the Student Services Building to make an appointment. During your first appointment, a professional counselor will work with you to help you clarify your concerns and explore if ongoing counseling or other services are needed. All counseling services are confidential and provided without charge. Psychiatric consultations are also available to discuss issues related to medication.



There have been so many painful stories in the news lately.  These tragedies can bring up strong feelings of sorrow, anger, fear and helplessness.  If you or someone you know is having strong reactions, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with one of our counselors.  They will be able to listen and share some ideas about how to manage your emotions about these horrific events.  There are also resources for how to manage distress after a mass shooting, and how to take care of yourself when you feel overwhelmed, how to deal with race-based trauma and resources for LGBTQ+ students affected by the shooting in Orlando.


Registration Open for Fall 2016 Body Project

The purpose of The Body Project is to help females establish and maintain a positive body image.  An evidence based eating disorders prevention program, The Body Project endeavors to help participants resist the ultra-thin, unrealistic ideal standard of female beauty prevalent in today's society.  Registration is open for ISU women who are interested in completing training to become a Body Project peer facilitator, or to sign up as a participant for one of the fall programs.  

Space is limited, so register now.   For more information or to schedule The Body Project for your group, contact Jenni Thome, Student Counseling Services at (309) 438-3655.
