Current Status of Service at the Psychological Services Center

PSC Coronavirus Response – Updated 4/10/20

As NIU responds to the COVID-19 pandemic, the health and safety of our clients and staff remain of upmost importance. We regret that the PSC will not be able to provide any on-going services at this time. We expect to remain closed at least until May 1, and we will need to re-evaluate our status when given the directive from the governor and the NIU administration. As we manage this transition, we advise current clients to check the PSC voicemail greeting for the most up-to-date information about our services.

Individuals who were active clients at the time of the stay-at-home order will be receiving letters with referral options. If you need assistance before you receive the letter, please call the PSC at 815-753-0591. Please leave a brief voicemail message, and we will do our best to assist you. We check our messages multiple times each day, and we will respond to you as soon as possible.

Unfortunately, during this time, we will not be taking new clients nor will we be able to offer assessment services until further notice. If you received a psychological evaluation, your clinician will contact you as soon as the report is complete.  We will contact you to provide feedback about the results and recommendations. 

We are sincerely sorry for any distress or inconvenience that these changes cause. We do not take these decisions lightly, as our priority at this time remains the continuity of care for our clients, training of our students, and the broader mental health and wellbeing of our community.

Below are some resources that may be useful regarding self-care and stress management, as well as guidance regarding physical health concerns:

If you have concerns about the safety of yourself or others, please call 911 or your nearest emergency department.
