Sul Ross State University Rio Grande College
“Let’s Talk – Life can be difficult. Learn how to cope.”
The mission of counseling services is to support the intellectual, emotional, social, and cultural development of students by offering a wide range of counseling, consultation, and educational services. These services help students resolve personal difficulties, and acquire the skills, attitudes, abilities, and knowledge that will enable them to take full advantage of their college experience. All students, regardless of race, gender, ethnic background, age, religion, citizenship or disability are welcome. We seek to foster intercultural competence to promote awareness and empathy within a multicultural environment.
College and Community Counseling Services
Offers confidential, free counseling services for SRSU Rio Grande College and Southwest Texas Junior College students.
These are some of the signs or issues that prompt people to seek counseling:
- Stress or anxiety
- Academic motivation
- Career choice confusion
- Eating disorders
- Substance abuse
- Family relationship conflicts
- Financial stress
- Grief/loss issues
- Intimacy, commitment or relationship issues
- Identity concerns (e.g., ethnic/racial identity, sexual orientation, spiritual identity)
- Thoughts and feelings about suicide or self-harm
- Anger or thoughts of violence
Typically, people struggle with these kinds of issues internally, mulling them over in their minds trying to sort out possible solutions to their dilemmas. They may talk things over with family members and friends, but sometimes that may not feel like it's enough.
How Can I Get the Most Out of Counseling?

- Consider how you feel about the counseling relationship.
- Be an active participant.
- Focus on what is most important to you.
- Recognize and express feelings.
