Counseling Resources provide a variety of services including mental health support and counseling, and assistance deciding whether you would like to report to the University. Any assistance and communications with confidential resources does not place the University on notice of a specific incident.
This is so you can receive needed assistance while still retaining control of your decision to report and incident to UH and/or law enforcement. More information on resources.
