302-831-2141

Welcome

At the counseling center, we have been working to adapt to the current circumstances and continue to work on tailoring our services as the primary resource for students’ mental health needs. CCSD remains open for students (our services are currently available virtually) to call us at 302-831-2141 during business hours and you will be connected with a member of the front desk staff who will guide you through next steps. After business hours or when the line is busy, you may be connected with the UD Helpline, which is a 24-hour counselor-on-call service that is also available to you. You can also reach the Helpline directly at 302-831-1001. New for Spring 2021, business hours are Mondays and Wednesdays 8AM – 7PM and Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays 8AM – 5PM.

CCSD is committed to creating an environment where students holding diverse identities feel welcomed, heard and understood. Diversity for us includes but is not limited to race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, nationality, socioeconomic status, language, religion, age, disability status, physical appearance, immigration status and political ideology. We believe that diversity in all forms must be celebrated, while also recognizing that individuals who hold one or more intersecting marginalized identities are liable to be impacted by oppressive social forces and systemic disadvantages. CCSD strives to be a system that is aware, sensitive and responsive to individuals being affected by current political circumstances as well as historical forces of influence such as racism, ethnocentrism, homophobia, ableism, classism, anti-Semitism, Islamaphobia and sexism among others.

Emergency Assistance

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