Mental Health Check-ins

These services are with Dr. Negar Shekarabi, PsyD, the Faculty and Staff Support Services Coordinator. During your mental health check-in, you can use the time to get 30 minutes of support or have an anxiety and depression screening. Both options will be followed by recommendations and referrals to improve your mental health, and you will learn about resources available to you as a UCI faculty or staff member.

The meetings are intended for supportive counseling. Treatment is not being provided during these meetings. This is not a suicide hotline. If you are feeling suicidal, please go to the nearest Emergency Room or call the National Suicide Hotline at 1-800-273-8255  or call or text the Suicide & Crisis Lifeline at 988.
