Overview

As Central Ohio Technical College moves to reopening campus as of August 16, 2021, Counseling Services is currently in development of a plan to offer hybrid services to students. If you are currently receiving counseling from one of our counselors, they will discuss available options with you. If you are not currently receiving counseling from our staff but would like to explore this option, please call the Office of Student Life front desk at 740.3649578 and ask to schedule a phone screening to discuss available options.

Mental wellness includes balancing our thoughts, emotions, physical and spiritual selves. Counseling assists with achieving balance as a college student juggles academics, work, relationships and self-care. Currently, requests for counseling are additionally reporting struggles with the symptoms of trauma and stress resulting from the current pandemic and/or the ongoing trauma of racial injustice.
