How to Schedule
Appointments to see a counselor may be made in person or by telephone, Monday through Wednesday, 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Thursday 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM and Friday 8:00 AM to 3:30 PM When making an appointment, you will be scheduled a time to discuss your issues in confidence with a counselor. The telephone number for CCS is 317-940-9385.
Your First Appointment
For your first appointment please plan to arrive 15 minutes early to fill out paperwork. When you arrive you will be asked to provide some information for your counselor. During the first appointment, your counselor will allow you to share information about yourself and also ask questions to better understand your concerns. Meetings with counselors generally last 50 minutes.
After the initial appointment the CCS staff will meet to determine what will best meet your needs (personal counseling, group counseling, or a referral to another provider). You will receive a call from the staff regarding your next step by the end of the week.
If you are seeking advice or information rather than counseling for yourself, you may also set up a consultation session or meeting with a counselor. Students often come in seeking support on how to help friends/roommates with concerns or to inquire about what kind of services/resources are available for a particular issue, such as sexual assault, alcohol and drug problems, or eating disorders.
