Parent Information

As parents, you may have questions or concerns about your student while he or she is away attending college. At this developmental point in their lives, issues related to identity development, intimacy and becoming more autonomous are natural. There also are stressors inherent to college life such as time management, changing relationships, academic rigor, finances, and decision-making. Also, of note is the trend toward a growing severity and complexity of mental health problems such as depression and anxiety among college students.

The Counseling Center consists of a psychologist and a counselor who are dedicated to helping your student adjust, cope, grow, and succeed. The information provided at this site has been developed to provide support to you in supporting your student. Also, a professional mental healthcare professional is only a phone call away when you would like to consult about any concerns you may have about your student’s functioning or happiness. Please call (405) 466-3400 so we can be of assistance. 

If you are a student in crisis, an on-call counselor is available in University Women 110 or 111 or by phone (405) 466-3400, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., weekdays. After hours counselors are available by phone through a resource named Call SAM at (855) 225-2726 or by contacting the Langston University Police at (405) 466-3366 or 911
