EOU Counseling Center Referral ListHere at the Counseling Center, we have put together a list of off-campus mental health agencies and practitioners. We have tried to gather whatever information we could, but it is still a good idea to call and ask about fees, insurance, if they are taking clients, etc., as the information gathered may be incomplete or no longer fully accurate.
