Psychosocial and Health Resources

The following websites are various resources located within the VCU website:

  • University Counseling Services (UCS)
    • Individual Therapy - UCS offers free individual counseling services in a safe judgment-free environment. An accepting, diverse and multidisciplinary staff provides the individual counseling services to undergraduate and graduate students.
    • Group Therapy - UCS offers free group counseling experiences, such as: Interpersonal Process Group, Men’s Group, LGBTQ Therapy Group, Recovery Support Group and Dialectical Behavior Therapy Group
    • Couples Therapy - UCS offers free couples counseling services that help couples communicate more effectively and improve their relationships. These services are available to all couples, regardless of marital status or sexual orientation.
  • The Wellness Resource Center (WELL) - The mission of the WELL is to help students achieve or maintain a healthy lifestyle.
  • Center for Psychological Services and Development (CPSD) - Services are available to individuals of all backgrounds and ages- from toddlers to seniors- to couples and families of all types. At the CPSD, you can expect the best care with a sliding scale fee to match your income. After submitting an application, a CPSD assistant director will contact you to learn more about your needs and goals. If it is determined that our services can be of use, you may then be contacted by a staff therapist to schedule an initial appointment, or intake session, at the CPSD. At that time, you and your therapist will begin to determine the major issues you would like to explore, and goals for your treatment. Such issues often include learning disabilities, career conflicts, phobias, depression and anxiety, relationship challenges, co-parenting and other stressors. Under regular supervision by a licensed psychologist/faculty member, your therapist will work with you to develop a treatment plan to work towards your treatment goals.
