Counseling Services – Everyone has problems sometimes. Working with a highly-trained counselor in a professional, confidential setting gives you an opportunity to share your concern, explore your options, and work toward a solution. Students participate in individual, group or couples counseling for a number of reasons; no concern is too big or too small.
Self help & relaxation – Counseling or a consultation can be a helpful choice for many students, but there are a lot of things you can try on your own to help your well-being. Check out some of these suggestions to help lower your stress level, improve your mood, or just do a ‘check-in’ to see how you’re doing. Want to learn a few new ways to relax and de-stress? Stop by our Mind Spa (120 Memorial Union), open during the fall & spring semesters on weekdays from 11am-2pm.
Outreach & Education efforts at UMaine are aimed at helping students engage with their surroundings, connect with each other, and belong to the UMaine community. We offer trainings for both students and staff on a variety of mental health related topics, from suicide prevention to health communication.
