No matter what your issue, please give us a try to see if we can help you.

 

Crisis Intervention

If you feel you are really struggling or in crisis, please call our main number during business hours at 801-957-4268 to schedule a crisis appointment. We are typically able to see you immediately after required intake paperwork is completed. If you need assistance when our office is closed or over the weekend, please use one of the following options:]

  • 24-Hour Community Crisis Line: 801-587-3000

  • SafeUT

If you are in immediate danger of harm to yourself or others, please call 911.

Counseling

We provide both individual and couple counseling. Group counseling offerings vary per semester. Frequency of sessions is every other week, unless your counselor feels you need to be seen weekly. Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, all counseling sessions are being provided by telehealth. You may choose to do either a phone session or a video meeting. Current counseling fees are being waived, so there is no cost for services. Groups being offered at this time can be found on this website or advertised on our social media pages.

Assessment

In addition to counseling, you may need a mental health assessment to help you access other services or academic options at SLCC. Assessments are available to help you qualify and provide documentation for accommodations through our Disability Resource Center, drop or withdraw from classes after the normal deadlines through a Registration Appeal, or to submit an appeal if extenuating circumstances caused you to fall short of Satisfactory Academic Progress. Psychiatric assessment and diagnosis are also routinely conducted as part of our medication management services.

Medication Management

Some mental health conditions require treatment with medication for optimal improvement. This may include significant levels of anxiety, depression, sleep disturbance, post-traumatic stress, ADHD, bipolar disorder, psychosis and thought disorder. Our psychiatric nurse practitioner can provide psychiatric evaluation to diagnose your condition, as well as, prescribe and manage medications. Medication management can be provided separately or in combination with counseling by the psychiatric nurse practitioner or by one of our licensed counselors.

Making an Appointment

To make an appointment for any of our counseling services, please call our main number at 801-957-4268.

You will need to complete our intake paperwork forms prior to being seen for your appointment. These forms consist of personal information and required consent to treatment. The forms can be accessed through our online Patient Portal by clicking here. If these forms are not completed by the time of your appointment, your appointment may need to be rescheduled. Once your appointment is scheduled and your paperwork completed, your assigned provider will contact you at the start of your appointment time. Part of your first session will include a review of your paperwork as part of our informed consent.
