Advocacy and Support Services

SARC at the University of Montana provides free and confidential peer counseling and crisis intervention to student survivors of sexual and relationship violence, as well as support and information for family and friends. Services are available to survivors at all stages of recovery, from initial crisis intervention to healing, through support groups and peer counseling. SARC is located at UM’s Curry Health Center. 

Counseling assists students by addressing their counseling and psychotherapy needs helping them gain the most from their time on campus.  When a student's mental health care needs are beyond the scope of our services, we will assist with referrals to community-based providers for specialized or longer-term care.  Counseling Services is located in the garden level of the Curry Health Center and is open Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
