A Note From the Director

Summer 2012

Welcome to the Student Counseling Service (SCS) Web Page!

I hope that you'll take some time to discover the variety of services and programs that we offer and take advantage of those you think might be helpful. You can register for most of our services right here on our website. Most of our services are free to current TAMU students who have paid their student service fee. We are funded primarily by your dollars, so please use what you've funded! We want to do our part to help you have the best possible experience during your time at Texas A&M University. Why are our programs helpful for students? Well, we offer a little bit of everything-individual, couple, and group counseling, as well as crisis intervention, outreach, consultation, psychiatric services, substance abuse treatment, and mentoring. Our workshops are timely and extremely informative, a list of current offerings is available on this website. Our staff of psychologists, psychiatrists, and counselors is knowledgeable and friendly; many are recognized experts in their own field. You may find out a bit about them by reading their brief biographies, also found here. Students can find what they are looking for at the Student Counseling Service and importantly, information shared with an SCS professional is treated confidentially and in accordance with Texas State law. Thanks for checking out our website. I hope you found it interesting and informative. If there's anything that I can do for you, please do not hesitate to contact me. I truly hope you have a wonderful and fulfilling experience at Texas A&M University; however, if you need help or just want to do better academically, please call on us at the Student Counseling Service.

Again, WELCOME!

Maggie Gartner, Ph.D., Director
