Counseling and Consultation Services

We provide comprehensive mental health support for currently enrolled students like you at Northern Illinois University. Our team of trained professionals is committed to improving the mental health of our student body as you work to achieve your academic and personal goals.

COVID-19 Update

Counseling and Consultation Services (CCS) continues to provide telecounseling support through video or phone appointments. We are open during office hours with limited staffing for mental health emergencies and students who need private accommodations for telecounseling appointments.

Please call 815-753-1206 to get support for yourself or someone else and CCS staff will help you determine what needs to happen next. We ask that you call first so we can maintain all COVID-19 health and safety guidelines.

After Hours Support

If you need immediate support after office hours, please call 815-753-1206 and you will be forwarded to speak with an on-call therapist.

Please call 911 if you are experiencing a mental health emergency, are concerned about your immediate safety or are concerned about the safety of others.
