COVID-19 Response from the Counseling Center

The UAH Counseling Center is following UAH protocol regarding COVID-19.  UAH Counseling Center is currently closed to appointments during the Limited Business Model period; however, counselors will continue to work remotely regarding center and university business.  

Students who are experiencing suicidal thoughts or another mental health emergency should call 911 or go to the closest Emergency Department. If this is an emergency is on campus, please call the UAH Police Department at 256-824-6911 and ask to speak with the on-call counselor.   

If this is not an emergency, you may call the office at (256) 824-6203 and leave a message. Messages will be checked remotely once every hour, Monday through Friday from 8:00 am until 5:00 pm. Please do not contact the center via social media, as this is not an approved HIPPA compliant form of communication.  Our center will be reaching out to all clients when able to discuss options for continued therapy once the university resumes with on-campus services.   

The UAH Counseling Center wants to provide students with continued support during this time.  Therapy Assistance Online (TAO) provides fantastic online therapeutic tools as a supplement for or an alternative to in person therapy.  TAO is available to all registered UAH students.  You can create or access your account here:    

In addition, TAO has made their Mindfulness exercises available to help manage the stress of the current state of events without logging in.  You can access these exercises here:
