If you are a parent, faculty/staff member, friend, partner, or loved one of a University of Iowa student and have concerns about the student’s mental health, you are welcome to call us at 319-335-7294 and speak with a counselor regarding your concerns. A typical caller would voice concerns about a student’s mental health and strategize with the staff member about how to help guide the student toward getting assistance and support.
If you choose to identify the student of concern by name, we will document the information you provide. Clients have legal access to their file and so they may become aware of your communication with us.
Without a signed Release of Information, our staff members cannot disclose any information about a specific client. We honor the confidentiality a client (with the exception of the imminent threat of harm to self or others). In order to get a Release of Information, the student needs to ask the UCS receptionist or their counselor for the form.
