Washburn Counseling Services provides short-term counseling options to help students perform their best academically. Services are available to all currently enrolled Washburn students for free. Counselors are also available by phone 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
If we determine that your treatment needs require resources or competencies beyond our scope of care, we facilitate referrals to an appropriate mental health provider or a community agency.
Note: Due to our scope of practice as a college counseling center, we are unable to accept any cases that are affiliated with an ongoing court case/order.
Washburn University is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for all students, staff and faculty. As a part of that commitment, the University requires that all new students complete an online violence prevention program, SafeColleges. This online program provides information about consent, bystander intervention, sexual assault and more.
The SafeColleges training must be completed before classes begin. You will receive instructions via your Washburn email account.
BODStander Intervention Skills
Every day we witness many things,
some good, others not. This makes us
all bystanders. To help us make good decisions about how to respond to what we see, Washburn University offers Bring in the Bystander training and advocacy events throughout the academic year.
Campus Advocacy Services
Washburn provides free on-campus
victim advocacy services to those who have experienced crime victimization, including sexual harassment and assault and domestic violence. Advocacy services include emotional support, rights and reporting information, safety planning and help finding resources and filling
out paperwork.
