The Ohio State University Counseling and Consultation Service provides a full range of mental health services to a heterogeneous university community.

We also train interns, fellows, residents, and practicum students in these disciplines. Strong emphasis is placed on the interdependence of staff as working professionals with diverse interests and philosophies.
