University of Oregon Health Services Overview

We work to support students in reaching their optimal health so that they can achieve their full academic and personal potential.

Mental health is just as important as physical health in maintaining a well-balanced and healthy lifestyle. It can be hard to manage your mental health with the demands of college—academics, jobs and internships, social life, extracurricular activities, sleep, and everything else you do. There are a variety of resources to help you manage your mental health. In addition to the mental health services provided by primary care clinicians, University Health Services offers outpatient psychiatric care, therapy and crisis services through the University Counseling Services, and the Duck Nest provides stress management programming and creates a relaxing environment in the heart of campus, the EMU.
