Counseling and Psychological Services

Welcome to Counseling & Psychological Services (CPS) at Kutztown University. 

In order to help students with mental health challenges they may experience during the 2023-2024 academic year, CPS will be offering a range of counseling services to Kutztown University students. 

Services will be offered in-person with an emphasis on providing the best care to students.

What types of services are offered at CPS?

  • Confidential counseling services are provided to students at no additional cost. Fees for graduate students who have not paid the Health and Wellness fee may apply.
  • Services for students experiencing difficulties with anxiety, depression, family and relationship troubles, substance use, and other concerns.
  • Services include, but are not limited to, initial consultation, individual and group counseling, crisis intervention, and community referrals.

How do I schedule the first appointment at CPS?

If you are interested in receiving mental health services at CPS, you will need to schedule an initial consultation with a counselor. Appointments are available Monday/Friday between 8:00am to 4:00pm and Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday between 11:00am and 7:00pm. 

It is preferred that students call CPS at 610-683-4072 to schedule an initial appointment. Initial consultations are not scheduled via email. If calling by phone is not possible, you may schedule in person at 122 Beck Hall.

Initial consultation appointments will be occurring in person and you will be required to complete forms in take. Students who may have difficulty in completing in take/initial forms may request assistance.

What happens during the first appointment at CPS?

During the initial consultation session, you will discuss your concerns and options for counseling. Options may include short-term counseling with a CPS counselor, group counseling at CPS, or obtaining off-campus referrals for longer-term or specialized counseling. If you know you are solely interested in off-campus referrals, please indicate that when calling to schedule your first appointment.
