Counseling: Frequently Asked Questions

If your emergency requires medical attention, University Police should be notified immediately at 673-3333. In the event of an after hours emergency, students can contact the Chautauqua County Crisis Hotline (1-800-724-0461) for mental health emergencies that require a response by mental health professionals. 

Students living on campus may notify their Resident Advisor (RA) or Resident Director (RD) of the crisis, who may then decide to engage emergency services. 

For more information see Crisis Services

Professional counselors work individually or with groups to help students understand themselves better, resolve problems, come to terms with difficult issues, and/or address important decisions.

The purpose of counseling is not to tell students what to do, but to emphasize the ultimate responsibility each person has in conducting his or her own life.

All registered Fredonia students may use the Counseling Center without charge. In addition, counseling staff are happy to assist faculty and staff members with concerns regarding registered students through consultation.

The Counseling Center is a safe place for Fredonia students. When you come here, you have the right to privacy. Counseling is strictly confidential and, unless it is a matter of saving human life, or we have been ordered by a court, no information is released to anyone without the student's written consent.

Appointments can be made in person or by phoning 716-673-3424. For more information see Appointments and Referrals
