Counseling Center

A MESSAGE FOR OUR LION FAMILY

A&M-Commerce Counseling Center is here for you. Distance counseling (video or phone) keeps us all safe. Receive ongoing support when you need it and all sessions are confidential. Students call 903.886.5145 to schedule your session. If you are new to the Counseling Center, you can schedule a distance intake appointment to get started. Lions HouseCalls will take advantage of the technology and host group support and check-in sessions. Look for announcements for the group support sessions. Lions caring for Lions!

These are unprecedented times and there is ample anxiety and concern over this rapidly changing illness. If you are on campus and need to speak to a counselor, please call and make an appointment.  

This illness has caused worldwide concern and in some cases panic. We are here to provide ongoing essential mental health services, support, and connection to resources. We will follow all university administration and A&M System directives. We are now prepared to offer online HIPAA compliant mental health services.

If you are ill or believe that you have been exposed to a communicable illness please seek appropriate medical care and minimize unnecessary face-to-face contact to avoid transmission of illness to others.  Take care of yourself and be there for others if you can. Together we will get through this challenging health crisis. Visit www.tamuc.edu for updates.
