Cal U Counseling Center and COVID-19 


The Cal U Counseling Center remains committed to supporting student emotional well-being and resilience. Due to the Covid-19 response, the Cal U Counseling Center will adjust its operations until the remainder of the spring term. Further changes may be required as Cal U and PASSHE directives change. At present, the center is not open to in-person counseling appointments or walk-in service requests. Group therapy will be suspended during this time period. Group members with questions may reach out to their group facilitator via email. 

The Cal U Counseling Center will be accessible via email and telephone for scheduled consultations and ongoing therapy appointments. We can also assist with finding a therapist or mental health resources close to your current location. If you would like to schedule a consultation, please contact us at 724.938.4056 or one of the following faculty counselors: 



If you need support in the moment, we encourage you to call your county’s crisis line or 911. A complete list of county crisis lines is located in the link below. 


Additional crisis supports include: 

  • National Suicide Prevention Lifeline: 1-800-273-8255 

  • Crisis Text Line: Text START to 741-741 

A trained crisis counselor will receive the text and respond quickly. This service is not sponsored nor supported by the University; this is a free nationwide crisis text line for anyone to use. For additional information see
