Mental health resources for students
Counseling services at MHSL is designed to provide short term counseling. There are no costs to the student during the 2022-23 academic year as we continue to deal with the impact of COVID-19. If longer-term services are required, your MHSL counselor will refer you to providers in the community for ongoing care.
Counseling is available a variety of days and times. If you would like to speak to a counselor, you may schedule by clicking the Make an appointment button. If the counseling times offered are not workable for you, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for possible alternatives.
For students outside of Minnesota: different states may have different laws regarding tele-counseling across state boundaries. When you speak to your counselor, please inform them where you are located so such laws can be confirmed. If your state does not permit out-of-state tele-counseling, your counselor can discuss options for referrals.
Lawyers Concerned for Lawyers (LCL)
LCL offers confidential assistance 24/7. You can speak to a counselor at any time at 651-646-5590 or via email at email@example.com. After hours, law students can also call to speak with counselors through LCL’s counseling partner, Sand Creek, by calling 651-430-3383.
