Welcome to the Center for Counseling & Student Development

We’re here to support you through empowerment, advocacy, encouraging growth and change, building resilience, and fostering connection and engagement. CCSD programs and services are intended to help with one or more of the following: reducing psychological symptoms, coping with life events and developmental tasks, improving interpersonal skills and relationships and increasing self-knowledge and resilience. We are committed to equity and respect for individual and cultural differences. Most services are covered by the Student Health Fee that all full-time matriculated students pay.

New in Spring 2019

In response to feedback, we will be piloting new procedures for first appointments at the CCSD this semester.

Individual Services

1 in 9 UD students will seek counseling for:
– anxiety or depression
– changes in personal relationships with friends, family, romantic partners or roommates
– challenges with mood or behavior

– concerns about academic or career choices

Group Services

CCSD staff regularly host workshops on topics including:

Emergency Assistance

If you perceive an immediate danger or risk of suicide, call 911 for immediate assistance.

CCSD has daily emergency walk-in availability during business hours. Students can also reach mental health support 24 hours a day on the UD Helpline or the Crisis Text Line.

Worried about a student?


We, the staff at the CCSD, would like to express our heartfelt condolences to Muslim students, staff, faculty at UD, and individuals around the world who are hurting in the wake of the recent terrorist attacks that took place in New Zealand. Such acts are condemnable and are against our values. We understand that such acts of hate and violence can have direct impact on multiple communities. We stand in solidarity with all who have been impacted by this event, and recognize that as a part of the UD campus community our responsibility is to support each other during these difficult times. If you have been affected and would like to seek mental health support, we encourage you to reach out:
