Accessing Services Remotely during COVID-19

Thank you for visiting TCS. You can now register for services online using the same format we used for in-person services during the same hours of operation of our walk in clinic 10am to 2pm Monday through Friday. After you complete all the forms a counselor will be in touch within 24 hours to schedule an Initial Assessment interview.  For students who are new to TCS, please follow the directions below.

If you are a new student to TCS, please click and complete section #1; this link is only available when we have counseling staff on-call between 10am and 2pm, Monday - Friday.  If you are physically located outside the state of Pennsylvania, it is necessary for you to work with mental health professionals who are licensed to practice in your state.  If you are interested in continuing counseling in a state other than Pennsylvania, please indicate if you would like our office to assist you to find a provider in your area.

If you have been seen at TCS in the past and are interested in speaking to a counselor please call 215-204-7276 or email and leave your name, phone number, email address and a message.

If you are a current client who has had an initial assessment and needs to reach your counselor please call 215-204-7276 or email and leave your name, phone number, email address and a message.  You do not need to complete initial data forms again.

If this is an emergency please go to your nearest psychiatric emergency center or call 911 for assistance, or 215-204-1234 to reach Temple police if you live close to main campus.

We recognize that the Coronavirus outbreak and the ensuing emotional, social, financial and public health impacts may be stressful and confusing.  In the midst of these rapidly evolving changes, we encourage you to utilize your social supports, engage your coping strategies and continue healthy and hygienic practices.

If you feel ill with a fever, cough and/or shortness of breath call your medical provider or Student Health Services for further guidance.

Please continue to check our website for updated information and know that if you have questions about your ongoing treatment, call our office at 215-204-7276.  Our website will continue to provide access to screening for mental health ( as well as resource links through our Resiliency Resource Center ( .)

Managing Distress & Gaining Connection

TCS counselors are here to support you as you navigate the challenges of life and the inevitable changes brought on by the pandemic. This is an open group for Temple students to come together and discuss academic and emotional distress, learn new ways to cope, and connect with peers. While this is not a therapy group in the traditional sense, TCS counselors hope this can be a supportive and therapeutic space and we look forward to hearing how you have been coping while also sharing any skills or coping strategies we believe may be beneficial. Additionally, while confidentiality is not guaranteed, we ask all members joining the conversation to be in a private setting, enable video and audio Zoom functions, and to be respectful of others in group.

We look forward to speaking with you! Please find Zoom meeting times and invites below.
