Every Fall and Spring semester the Carruth Center for Psychological and Psychiatric Services offers a variety of groups. Counseling groups are often the best way to work on areas of concern, especially when those concerns deal with issues that directly affect your relationship with others. Groups give you contact with peers as well as a therapist in a safe and confidential environment.
Membership in a group is by appointment only. We do offer drop in groups each semester, but these will also require that you make an appointment with us. Please call us at 304-293-4431 or drop by the Carruth Center, located on the 2nd floor of the Health & Education Building if you are interested in joining a group.
For further information about group services at Carruth Center for Psychological and Psychiatric Services or to share ideas about a group you would like to see offered, please contact the Group Coordinator, Christine Simpson, at 304-293-4431.
