Community Counseling Clinic COVID-19 Operations Update

A Message From Our Clinic

In accordance with UNG’s policies and the Centers for Disease Control’s guidance, as of August we converted all face-to-face services to virtual telehealth sessions and phone consultations. We utilize the Zoom platform for video telehealth sessions and also, based on convenience or your preference, we offer phone calls.

We alongside you, are processing through the uncertainty and risk this outbreak brings. Our primary goal at the UNG Community Counseling Clinic is care and prevention in all forms so for the collective health of you, your families, and our community, we gratefully continue to offer our services and support. 

Physical distance does not mean we need to remain socially isolated. In fact, individuals, families, and communities can maintain the one thing we all need right now, social connection! We are here to support you whether you are a student, a community member of Lumpkin or any surrounding county, a staff or faculty member of UNG, a working Mother, a teenager, a healthcare worker, or a grandparent. Don't hesitate to reach out for our free, supportive counseling services.

You can reach us through our main clinic email at cmhc.clinic@ung.edu, and also via our main clinic number, 706-867-2588. Please continue to listen to our most recent voice message, as well as our automatic response via e-mail. A staff member will return your call or e-mail within 3 business days. If you would like help exploring referrals or resources, we are here to assist.

Best,
UNG Community Counseling Clinic
