Welcome to Curry Health Center Counseling Services. We provide a confidential and inclusive environment to address the personal, behavioral and mental health needs of all UM and Missoula College students. We specialize in addressing the concerns and goals of our diverse community. Every student has to navigate a wide variety of stressors and challenges during their college career.

We’re here to offer support as well as assist in getting connected to resources on and off campus. Our licensed counselors, social workers and psychologists, as well as advanced graduate students, offer individual and group therapy in addition to urgent counseling and ADHD testing services. Your initial consultation is no cost and subsequent individual sessions are $25 (up to a total of 12 sessions in an academic year).

There is no cost to Group Therapy and there is a fee associated with ADHD testing. Making an appointment is easy and we prioritize getting students in as quickly as possible.

As the COVID-19 pandemic evolves, counseling services can be conducted in-person or via Zoom, depending on the student’s wishes. If Zoom is used, Counseling Services uses an encrypted and HIPAA compliant version of Zoom. Students who are unable to arrange a private location for their counseling, or have technical challenges, are welcome to use one of our office 'Zoom Rooms'. If a student wants to meet in person, the student will need to have a pandemic screen before entering the office and will need to wear a mask or face covering throughout their session.  Counseling Services follows the came COVID-19 mitigation protocols as the University of Montana campus.

Diversity and Inclusion

Counseling Services supports the University's efforts towards campus unity and inclusion. We embrace the inherent value of diversity and endeavor to promote a safe environment that respects and upholds the dignity and civil rights of all persons. We acknowledge the injustice and profound impact of discrimination and marginalization of individuals and groups. We strive to promote students' ongoing academic, personal and multicultural growth and welcome dialogue of varying perspectives. In addition to the counselors imbedded in Curry Health Center, we have a part-time BIPOC counselor working out of the Branch Center at the UC (Call the Branch Center at 406-243-5776 or Counseling Services at 406-243-4712 for more information).
