Counseling Services

Welcome to Counseling Services!

College can be an exciting and challenging time for students. The mission of the Counseling Services is to provide high quality mental health referrals and programs that foster the academic development, personal development, and psychological well-being of ASU-Beebe's diverse student body.

From outreach and prevention to crisis intervention, Counseling Services is dedicated to supporting and empowering you to maximize your college experience and realize your fullest potential. All programs are free and confidential.

Suicide Prevention

According to the National Institute of Mental Health, suicide is the second leading cause of death among college students with more than 1,000 students committing suicide each year on a college campus. Additionally, according to a recent study from the Centers for Disease Control and Infection, U.S. adults reported considerably elevated adverse mental health conditions associated with COVID-19--with younger adults reported having experienced disproportionately worse mental health outcomes, increased substance use, and elevated suicidal ideation.

Below is a helpful newsletter and brochure for students, faculty, and staff to use as a guide for suicide prevention. Please do not hesitate to talk to us whenever you need someone to listen. Please contact us so that we can be of help.
