IAIA Counseling is available to enrolled students as a student support service. Immediate family members living on campus may also qualify for services.
The counseling program encourages all students to utilize these services, when needed, as additional support during the time they are enrolled in school. Many students benefit from utilizing this opportunity to address questions and concerns about campus life and to deepen their understanding of themselves in a respectful, confidential, and supportive environment.
These services include individual trauma-informed therapy, expressive arts, art therapy, talk therapy, and body-centered modalities to address a wide array of concerns that are common to the college experience. These concerns may include homesickness, loneliness, relationships, insomnia, shyness, stress, trauma, depression, anxiety, substance misuse or issues with addictive behavior, disordered eating, and grief and loss. A student may also come meet with a counselor to ask a question, explore a problem, or to just sit for a while.
The best way to request counseling services is to email any of the counselors listed below. You may also call and leave a voicemail, to which we will respond within 24 business hours during week days. All efforts are made to make counseling services easily accessible and to accommodate students’ schedules. We are here for students and want to offer the needed support for a successful experience at IAIA.
If you are having a mental health crisis please let us know in your email or voicemail and we will respond and get you in as soon as possible. It is also recommended you call a crisis line (there are several listed in the emergency contacts below our pictures), contact campus security at (505) 577-1660, call 911, or take yourself to the emergency room if needed.
If you are having a mental health emergency please call 911, campus security at (505) 577-1660, or take yourself to the nearest hospital.
All counseling services are confidential and are not included in students’ academic record.
Additional mental health resources and up-to-date communication from the counseling team can be found at the Mental Health Resources Page.
If you are concerned about your mental health, or that of a loved one, we invite you to take a mental health screen (print or email the results to yourself). Please contact IAIA Counseling if you would like to discuss the results of the mental health screen.
