Services for Students
Come with friends or by yourself to chat with a counselor. You can talk to a counselor about anything on your mind and there's no need to worry that anyone else will find out. Students stop by to talk stories about everything: family, friends, classes, professors, relationships, work, housing, finances, dreams, goals, and much more.
Talking story with a counselor can help you connect with yourself, connect with others, find your balance, make changes, cope with life, and explore what's next in your life.
Help a Friend
Do you think a friend might need help? You can talk to a counselor to learn more about warning signs of common conditions that college students face. You can also learn how to talk to a friend, and what resources are there to help you and your friend.
Learn more about common conditions that student experience and resources available to your friend.
Workshops and Support Groups
If you want to learn more about a specific topic or practice a particular skill, a workshop or class might be for you. Group counseling is often the best treatment choice for many conditions that college students face because it reminds us that we are not alone, and gives us the chance to help others.
Many of us ask for help from friends, family members, or significant others. But sometimes we can benefit from the help of a trained professional. In counseling, we can identify more effective strategies to cope with difficult situations and to achieve our goals.
Couples counseling can help any two people in a relationship with their problems. Any UH Hilo or Hawaiʻi CC student and their partner are eligible. Couples can gain more insight into each other, learn new and more effective communication skills, and learn how to solve problems together.
