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.

ADHD ResourcesDo you have difficulty sustaining your attention in class, at home, or with friends? Do you feel like you’re always “on the go,” you often fidget, or have difficulty waiting your turn? These experiences are commonly associated with a condition called “ADHD.”

Mental Health and Wellness Apps - Technology is available for those seeking to work on their mental health and wellness.  Our blog post has a list of apps used by some of our clinicians (not an endorsement in any way - just what some of our clinicians found useful for themselves) for things like meditation, yoga, mindfulness, and more.
