The mission of the Counseling Center is to provide a range of psychological and counseling services to meet the mental health and developmental needs of Morgan students. The Counseling Center strives to support the emotional, interpersonal, social, and career development of MSU students.
Dear Morgan Students,
There have been many tragedies that have taken place over the past few weeks and over the past few years. All of us are doing our best to understand and manage our thoughts and feelings as we cope with the co-occurring pandemics of Covid-19 and ongoing racism. Some students may have had direct or indirect experience the past few days that left them feeling angry, hopeless, anxious, stressed out, depressed or just "some kind of way" they can't quite describe.
The MSU Counseling Center is here to support you during these troubled times. If you are having difficulty, feeling alone in all of this, or just want to talk about how you feel, we invite you to speak with one of our counselors. Please do not hesitate to give us a call at 443-885-3130 and leave a message with your name and contact information. A representative from the counseling center will return your phone call.
We are available for video or telephone consultation, by appointment Monday through Friday from 9am to 4pm.
