WELCOME to the Carruth Center for Psychological and Psychiatric Services

Welcome to the Carruth Center for Psychological and Psychiatric Services (CCPPS) website. Whether you are an undergraduate, graduate, or professional student, full-time or part-time, we want to help you complete your education.

Your time at WVU may be filled with transitions, self-exploration, and change. Our services and programs are designated to support you through these experiences, help you succeed in college, and guide you toward a more fulfilling life. We strive to provide these services in an atmosphere that is welcoming, comfortable, and multiculturally sensitive for all students, faculty, and staff. 

Regarding Current Events

We are deeply shocked and saddened by the recent attacks on the Muslim community in New Zealand. Our hearts go out to the victims, their families, and communities who are directly affected by this terrorist act of anti-Muslim bigotry. We are also thinking of our Muslim community at WVU and in Morgantown. We can imagine how this attack can contribute to feeling confused, targeted and unsafe.  

The Carruth Center strives to create a safe environment where diversity and inclusion are recognized and valued, as well as a confidential space where students may seek support and process their reactions. Please note that your reactions are valid, and they matter to us. If you would like to connect with a counselor, we invite you to contact us at 304-293-4431 or drop in anytime Monday through Friday from 9:00 am – 3:00 pm. We also have an after-hours counselor available by phone 304-293-4431, should you have an emergency after 5:00 pm or on the weekends. 

CCPPS Diversity Statement

The Carruth Center for Psychological and Psychiatric Services (CCPPS) is dedicated to fostering a supportive learning environment for all members of the WVU community. We are grateful for the diversity of our Mountaineer family, which can span age, appearance, ethnicity and race, financial means, gender, language, military experience, nationality, physical and mental abilities, politics, religion and spirituality, region, body size, and sexual orientation. We believe that acknowledging the cultural wealth of everyone helps us to recognize, at once, the uniqueness and the universality of the human experience. This recognition of our similarities and differences can make us mindful of how we define ourselves and treat other members of our Gold and Blue community. Join us as we encourage staff and others to engage in open and ongoing dialogue about the attitudes, values, and beliefs that shape us, individually and collectively, in this global age.


The Carruth Center for Psychological and Psychiatric Services is accredited by the International Association of Counseling Services
