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 to call us at 302-831-2141 during business hours (M-F, 8-5). The UD Helpline remains available 24 hours a day for any student in need of someone to talk to, and students in need outside of our business hours can reach support by calling 302-831-1001. 

CCSD services are available virtually.  See a full menu of our services on our services page.  We also encourage you to explore our website as we have many on-line resources listed throughout here as well.  There may be states in which we are unable to offer our full menu of services, but please call our front desk (302-831-2141) and they will schedule you with an appropriate appointment to help you meet your needs.

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.

Students can also reach mental health support 24 hours a day on the UD Helpline or the Crisis Text Line.
