Anxiety and Depression

West Virginia University offers drop-in counseling for students every weekday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m, where students can simply come to room 227 in the new Health and Education building on the Evansdale campus and tell the receptionist they want to speak with a counselor. No appointment is necessary.

Students may also make an appointment by calling 304-293-4431. If this number is called after hours, the WVU Department of Public Safety will take the student’s phone number, and immediately contact the Carruth Center staff member on duty, who will assist him or her.

If you or someone you know is having suicidal thoughts, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline: 1-800-273-TALK (8255).
