Counseling & Support Resources

Mental Health Services

Students who experience depression, anxiety, or other mental health difficulties are encouraged to seek appropriate assistance. The legal community in Minnesota and other states emphasizes the importance of identifying and proactively addressing any challenges that may interfere with an attorney or law student's ability to meet the standard of practice. Students are encouraged to address concerns right away, with support from professional providers. Where support and treatment can adequately address an underlying impairment, seeking help actually improves an applicant's ability to be accepted to the bar.

For comprehensive information about mental health resources at the University of Minnesota, go to www.mentalhealth.umn.edu. The Law School Student Services division has also compiled a list of available student support resources. Professional counseling and therapy resources are available to University of Minnesota students at two locations on the East Bank of the Minneapolis Campus:
