Free counseling offered to Ivy Tech Students

BLOOMINGTON – The Indiana University Center for Human Growth will continue to offer free mental health counseling to Ivy Tech students for the spring 2018 semester. Since 2007, Ivy Tech Bloomington has partnered with the Center, led by Dr. Lynn Gilman, to offer this no-cost service to students.

The partnership also allows doctoral students in Indiana University’s educational psychology program to earn required practical counseling hours.

The counseling service is both free and confidential, and nearly all available appointment slots fill by the end of each semester. To date, the 10+ year partnership has provided approximately half of a million dollars in free mental health counseling to Ivy Tech students.

Ivy Tech awarded the IU Center with a Community Partner Award in April 2017, as part of the annual O’Bannon Institute for Community Service event.

Students can schedule appointments by calling (812) 330-6287 or emailing Counseling-R14@lists.ivytech.edu. More information is available on campus in the student development office, room C139.
