Resources for students during COVID-19

Psychology Specific Resources

As more resources become available, we will add them to this list. Please contact us if there is a concern that is not listed below. 

ASU Counseling Services

While ASU classes are multimodal, ASU Counseling Services will offer services remotely. To reach a counselor or schedule an appointment, please call 480-965-6146. As always, we will talk with you, help you identify solutions or support, and connect you with those services at ASU or in the community.

ASU Counseling Services are for any Sun Devil, regardless of your race, gender, sexual orientation, age, student status, religion, ability, size, financial situation, the issue you're dealing with or whether you've had counseling before. Something as simple as talking to someone can help you feel better, improve your grades and manage stress.
