inf-front-sideYou can schedule an appointment to meet with a psychologist by calling (540) 464-7667 or by coming to the 2nd floor of the VMI Health Center and talking with the CCC office manager. The VMI Health Center is located behind Crozet Dining Hall. 

In the event of a life-threatening emergency, call 911 or go to the nearest hospital emergency department. 

To cancel or reschedule an appointment

Please contact the CCC, (540) 464-7667, or your psychologist directly if you will be late for an appointment. We appreciate as much advance notice as possible in order to offer the canceled time slot to another cadet in need of services.

Who is eligible for counseling services?

All full-time cadets currently enrolled in classes at VMI are eligible for services at the Center for Cadet Counseling.

What to expect at the initial appointment?

Please arrive 20 minutes early to your first appointment in order to complete initial paperwork. Once you have completed the paperwork, you will meet with a psychologist to discuss your current situation and to evaluate treatment needs.

Initial appointments at the CCC typically last 30-45 minutes. Depending on your needs, we may recommend you make follow-up appointments with our office or make a referral to an outside provider of mental health services within the local community.
