Please be aware, The Office of Counseling Services will be closed July 2021. In-person and telehealth counseling will resume on a limited basis in August 2021 (for students who are in RI, taking classes at Bryant, or on campus). We are fully committed to serving our community in the ways available to us. Due to newly-implemented regulations, Bryant University Counseling Services located in Rhode Island is unable to provide telehealth services to students outside of Rhode Island. The office will be fully operational and in-person at the start of the Fall 2021 Semester.
Counselors are available M-F from 8:30AM-4:30PM for free, confidential counseling or consultation.
The Office of Counseling Services provides a place for students to discuss these multifaceted changes in a private and confidential setting. Counseling helps students cope with these challenges and make sound decisions. Students who are experiencing serious emotional difficulties, or who require specialized or longer-term treatment, can receive referrals to professional services off campus.
Services are free of charge. The staff follows strict professional codes of confidentiality. Counseling records are not part of University records.
Common issues include:
Students interested in initiating counseling services can email Bryant Counseling Services: firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a meeting with a counselor via phone or Zoom. Prior to these meetings, students will be asked to sign an informed consent form for telehealth and to provide student ID information. In some cases, telehealth may be prohibited by state law. Your assigned counselor will talk through your needs with you and help find the appropriate resources if it is out of our scope of services.
Finding a counselor in your area:
Sometimes students prefer to work with a provider off campus. A counselor can also help you with local referrals in your area.
