We're here to hear!

Opportunities to Be Heard

From faculty and advisors to coaches and peers — and, of course, our professionals in the Counseling Services  — there really isn’t a day or time when members of the MU Community aren’t here for each other.

With COVID, unpredictable national news, continued focus on racial healing, and what can be typical semester stresses, MU continues its “Here to Hear” messaging to remind everyone that you’re not in any of this alone. Not only will “Here to Hear” remain a section on the Counseling Services landing page, but faculty and staff will continue to wear “Here to Hear” buttons so you may easily pick out someone eager and willing to be there for you.

Please, always, seek any one of the many support outlets MU provides and be heard in a respectful, listening-focused space. Don’t hesitate to reach out to our Chief Diversity Officer, Dr. Quincy Malloy Sr. (qmalloy@methodist.edu), and MU continues to also provide weekly opportunities for reflection and prayer through our Department of Religious Life.


Campus Contacts: We’re Here to Hear!

COUNSELING SERVICES

If you are dealing with general life issues, or anxiety, worry, disappointment, and/or other emotions, we are here to support you. If you need someone to assist you in processing and working through what you are experiencing, we are here for you! Whether you are an established client, or are seeking services for the first time, we are here to help!

Counseling Services is located on the first floor of West Hall. Students who would like to meet with a counselor in person should call 910.630.7164 to make an appointment.

MU is excited to share that it has purchased a new, high-end virtual care opportunity that offers every enrolled student free, unlimited access (24/7/365) to doctors, therapists, and on-demand crisis counseling.

Starting is easy. Students can simply activate their free account at thevirtualcaregroup.com/Methodist, and they will be connected virtually to a doctor or a therapist.
