Request Outreach Services
After January 31st, 2022, requesters can put in a preference for in-person; remote; or no preference. There may be times where we ask if an in-person request can be done remotely due to staff availability.
UCI students, staff, and faculty requesting outreach services must complete an Outreach and Prevention Request Form (below). If you are a student requesting a presentation for your student group or organization you must have the permission from your faculty/staff advisor first. Due to the many responsibilities of Center staff and the large request for services, we must require a minimum of 10 audience members at each function. Requests need to be received at least two to three weeks in advance with at least three prioritized “choice dates” have a greater likelihood of being accommodated. If you would like to access any of the outreach services provided by the Counseling Center, please complete the Outreach Request Form below. We also encourage you to familiarize yourself with the Friends Helping Friends Presentations offered every Spring Quarter by members of the Counseling Center’s Peer Educator Program.
Please wait a few moments to receive a confirmation message that your request has been submitted before hitting the “submit” button again. There may be a slight delay before you receive this message. If you do not receive a confirmation message after 1 minute, please use the PDF version of the form.

Are you struggling with your relationship with food? In honor of National Eating Disorders Awareness Week that occurs Feb. 21st- Feb. 27th here are 7 tips that will help you improve your relationship with food:
1. Be aware that there are NO “good” foods and “bad” foods. All foods provide nutrition and sustenance to the body and our bodies need protein, carbohydrate, fiber, and even sugar and fat to survive. All foods are good if you eat a variety of foods to get all of the nutrients that you need in moderation….
It is getting closer to the holiday break and the end is in sight! Soon we will be with family and friends and getting some much-needed relaxation after the start to the quarter! Phew!
While this time can be something to look forward to, it is important to still be aware of caring for your mental health. Here are some things to consider as we reach the end of the year!
It is natural to feel stress, anxiety, grief, and worry during and after an emergency like the COVID-19 pandemic and continued concerns around anti-Black and anti-Asian violence and discrimination. Everyone reacts differently, and your own feelings will change over time. Notice and accept how you feel. Taking care of your emotional health during an emergency will help you think clearly and react to the urgent needs to protect yourself and your loved ones. Self-care during an emergency will help your long-term healing.
