Frequently Asked Questions 

TTUHSCEP recognizes that personal problems can have a direct and adverse impact on an individual’s educational or job performance. Confidential, on-site, and telehealth counseling services are offered to residents, fellows, and their immediate family members living in their households. The program is intended to help with a variety of personal issues, including relational, family, cognitive, emotional, and behavioral concerns.

The participant will receive up to five (5) psychotherapy services free of charge. If further intervention is recommended by the clinician, resources will be provided. Cost of counseling or treatment beyond the five (5) RAP sessions are the responsibility of the individual.

The participant is referred to a physician on their insurance panel or to a physician in the TTUHSCEP Department of Psychiatry, based on the participant’s preference.
