About Us

Student Counseling Services (SCS) provides free, confidential, mental health services for eligible students. SCS supports the academic mission by providing learning opportunities for students to grown as individuals, to form deeper relationsihps with their peers, and to develop as successful members of our community and society at large.

The primary purpose of SCS is to assist students with typical student developmental issues and to provide short-term, professional counseling to students with general well-being and mental health concerns.

SCS provides quality mental health care to Radford University students, consultative services to the larger community, and training to graduate students in the mental health field. All services are provided under the direction of licensed and experienced mental health professionals. The staff is guided by the highest professional and ethical standards of their professions and is dedicated to providing quality services.

SCS works within strict, ethical, and legal guidelines to protect the confidentiality of the students we see.
