How do I make an appointment?

Call (513) 529-4634 during our business hours (8AM to 5PM). The receptionist will arrange for an initial consultation (20-30 mins).

The purpose of the initial consultation is to identify your problems and to explore how to best meet your needs. The counselor that you meet with will explore with you the various options available to you and will help you to make a decision among these options. In an emergency, we work hard to see you as soon as possible.

If you have any questions about any of our services, if you would like to consult about a situation, or if you would like to schedule an appointment, please give us a call.

Only Love Can!

MLQ Quote

Miami University’s Student Counseling Service (SCS) is deeply saddened by the recent national incidents of gun violence.  SCS stands in solidarity with the entire Miami University community, especially those affected by violence and systemic oppression. Senseless acts of violence can threaten our sense of well-being and safety or lead to a state of fear, and speaking with someone you trust can help. 

The Student Counseling Service welcomes any Miami student who is interested in receiving emotional support following these events.  Students can speak with a mental health professional by contacting the Student Counseling Service at 513-529-4634Monday-Fridaybetween 7:30 AM - 4:30 PM. We also remain available as colleagues to Miami staff and faculty who would benefit from consultation as we all continue the work of supporting one another and growing together.
