The Carruth Center's services will be provided virtually through telehealth and other online methods except in crisis situations or when clinically indicated until further notice due to ongoing COVID-19 concerns. Your counselors will contact you about ongoing service options. Please call 304-293-4431 or send us an email if you have questions. If immediate assistance is needed, the Crisis Text Line is available by texting WVU to 741741 to reach a live, trained counselor. It is free, confidential and available 24/7.

Outreach programs will be a hybrid of in-person and virtual. 

In-person options are available for crisis situations or when clinically indicated.

Upcoming Programs

We also provide information and awareness in the areas of mental health and psychological concerns.  Sometimes this is within a partnership with other University departments and student groups; other times this is a program of our own.  Please check out the following programs: 

Let's Chat

Let's Chat provides easy access to informal, drop-in consultation (virtual and in-person spaces) with counselors from Carruth. Meetings are free, one-time, and no longer than 20 minutes. No appointment necessary: students are seen on a first-come, first service-basis.  Let's Chat is not a substitute for formal counseling and does not constitute mental health treatment. Common concerns include; stress, sadness, homesickness, relationship concerns, etc. 

Virtual Let's Chat: Wednesdays from 4:00 PM- 5:00 PM

In-Person Let's Chat for Spring 2022 will be in a different location each Monday from 3:00-5:00 PM. Please see the schedule below. Counselors will be in the main/lobby area of each location and will have access to a private space.
