The Carruth Center is open, but most of our clinicians are working remotely. We are only seeing psychological and psychiatric emergencies in person at this time. For information about counseling options available to students located in West Virginia as well as students currently outside of the state, please see our COVID-19 updates page.

A Diverse Community

The Carruth Center for Psychological and Psychiatric Services (CCPPS) is dedicated to fostering a supportive and inclusive 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, citizenship status, 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 Blue and Gold community. Join us as we encourage all members to engage in open and ongoing dialogue about the attitudes, values, and beliefs that shape us, individually and collectively, in this global age.

As a center, we are committed to diversity.

If you have questions of what it might be like to live in Morgantown, WV with a minoritized identity, please feel free to reach out, and we can put you in touch with a staff member to answer your questions.
