Mental Health is a key part of your overall health. Brief screenings are the quickest way to determine if you or someone you care about should connect with a mental health professional - they are a checkup from your neck up. The program is completely anonymous and confidential, and immediately following the brief questionnaire you will see your results, recommendations and key resources.
A few reasons to consider taking the screening if you or someone you know -
- have been feeling sad, down or empty (depression)
- experiencing mood swings from very high to very low (bipolar disorder)
- constantly worried, anxious (generalized anxiety disorder)
- troubled by traumatic events (post traumatic stress disorder)

What We Offer
The Student Wellness Center is staffed by two licensed professional counselors who provide confidential, short-term counseling to currently enrolled Cameron University students. The counselors will meet with you to discuss your concerns and goals.
Counseling Services Include:
- Adjustment to university life
- Test Anxiety
- Substance use and abuse
- Grief and loss
- Relationship Issues
- Separation Anxiety
Personal counseling services provided at our center are covered by the Health Service Fee in the tuition paid at the beginning of the semester. There are no further charges. All Cameron students who are enrolled in at least 3 credit hours on the Lawton or Duncan campuses are eligible for counseling services. Unfortunately this excludes the OU and Western nursing students as well as online only CU students.
What To Expect
Counseling services are available Monday through Friday by appointment only. No referral needed to be seen. Anyone coming to the Student Wellness Center in crisis will be asked to remain in the center until they are seen. They will be top priority and seen as quickly as possible by a counselor.
Once each counselor has reached the number of students allotted a waiting list will be created. In the event that happens you can be referred to discounted counseling centers in the community or remain on the waiting list.
Bring your Cameron ID and fill out a request for counseling form. Before your first appointment you will be asked to fill out a counseling intake packet that takes about 30 minutes to complete. If you do not have your packet competed and turned in at the time of your first appointment, you may be asked to fill it out as part of your first appointment. Please call should you need to cancel, will be late or have any questions.The Student Wellness Center is open:Monday through Friday 8:00-5:00(580) 581-6725Counseling Services are available:Monday through Friday 9:00-5:00 by appointment only*Crisis clients take precedence
