Appointment requestWelcome

Each year, hundreds of students use the services of Counseling and Psychological Services. We provide a wide range of services that are free and confidential for students. The primary mission of the department is to support the personal, professional, and academic growth of Clayton State students. The staff is diverse, professional, warm and receptive to students who seek services.

In order to keep students and staff safe, we are providing all services by telephone or secure video conference this fall. Because services are online, students will not have to come to our office for appointments. This means they can have their therapy appointment from their residence hall, their apartment, or even from their parents' home.

All services are by appointment only, so please call or e-mail us prior to visiting our office.

To make an appointment, please call 678-466-5406 or use the e-mail request above.
