Additional Counseling Resources

Student life comes with its share of stress and responsibilities, which can at times become overwhelming and make you feel vulnerable. According to the National College Health Assessment, 87% of students have felt overwhelmed, 85% have felt exhausted (in a way unrelated to physical activity) and 71% have felt very sad at least once in the last 12 months (ACHA, 2019).

It is important to pay attention to your well-being in both your personal and academic life. Remember that AUP's counseling team is here to provide support during difficult times.

Our guidance counselors are looking forward to meeting with you during either walk-in hours or scheduled appointments. Below, you'll find information about the mental health support and resources available to you as an AUP student. If you have further questions, don't hesitate to contact the counseling team.



Suicide is often considered a taboo topic, but learning to talk about it can save a life. Our counseling services are here to provide support and evaluate risk and urgency when a student is experiencing anxiety, depression or suicidal thoughts. Reach out for advice and assistance or to learn about a range of services that can help.



AUP pledges to provide a secure and safe environment where every student is treated with dignity, care and respect. If you experience a sexual assault, the counseling team is here to accompany you through both the legal process and the healing process and to provide you with resources and referrals for further support.



The use of alcohol and other drugs is a concern on all college campuses – AUP is no exception. We are committed to helping students make healthy decisions about alcohol and other drugs. Book an appointment with one of our counselors or therapists to discuss resources for preventing and treating substance abuse.



We’re proud of our diverse community at AUP, and we expect all community members to treat each other with respect and dignity. Connect with a guidance counselor to discuss your unique situation or to access our network of therapists, including those specializing in working with Black students, students of color, LGBTQ+ students and other members of our diverse community.



Doing well academically means attending classes, making time to study, handing in assignments and passing exams, all while keeping to deadlines. Getting organized will give you a clearer picture of what needs to be accomplished and help you balance your studies with your personal life.
