Counseling Services for IUPUC Students

Solutions Student Assistance Service

Sometimes, life presents us with circumstances that challenge our ability to cope. Along with work, family, and other responsibilities, students must also manage academic responsibilities. Students at Indiana University-Purdue University Columbus (IUPUC) can take advantage of up to five free sessions with a licensed counselor.

Solutions Student Assistance Service (SAS) provides free, local, professional, and confidential consultations for IUPUC students. Solutions SAS can help you clarify and develop a plan to address life’s challenges. Their counselors can help you find the tools and support you need to navigate the tough times and set clear priorities, both now and for the future.

All IUPUC students are eligible for up to five (5) free counseling sessions per documented issue, which include, but are not limited to:

  • Depression
  • Addiction
  • Stress
  • Grief/Loss
  • Anxiety

If more than five sessions are needed, students can utilize their individual medical and health insurance. Other financing options can be discussed and arranged with a Solutions staff member.

To utilize these services, please contact Solutions directly at 812.377.5074 or 1.800.766.0068. If you have an after-hours emergency, you can call the above numbers and speak to a crisis agent.

Solutions is a service of Centerstone Indiana.
