MENTAL HEALTH COUNSELING CENTERS: Sometimes we just need someone to talk to. Jackson State offers brief counseling services free to currently enrolled students. The Counseling Office is in Room 133 of the Student Center and staff accept walk-ins and appointments.
If more help is needed, the community offers both public and private services. The link below lists agencies and organizations you may contact. This is a general list of offices covering the Jackson State service area. We do not recommend any providers, but make this information available for those seeking services:
