The Georgia State University Counseling and Testing Center (CTC) provides a wide range of counseling, testing, psychiatric and holistic health services to support students as they work to reach their educational goals.

Mission Statement
The primary mission of the CTC is to support Georgia State University students in achieving their personal and educational goals by enhancing their mental and emotional health, interpersonal relationships and academic performance through accessible, professional, culturally competent and empirically supported services. The CTC is committed to promoting inclusion, with services designed to provide respectful treatment to students of every background.

The staff also provides assistance to faculty, administrators and staff in assisting students in distress, enhancing the learning process and providing guest lecturers for classes.

The CTC is staffed by a multidisciplinary team of psychologists, psychiatrists, licensed clinical social workers, licensed practical counselors and licensed marriage and family therapists, a nutritionist and health educators in the Mind-Body clinic. The CTC staff is diverse in many ways, including age, gender, race, sexual identity, religious background and national origin.

Clinical senior staff is invested in their own professional development in the area of multiculturalism. Center staff hosts a biennial Cultural Competency Conference in collaboration with other campus stakeholders. Recent keynote speakers at this conference include: Nikki Giovanni (2014), Deepak Chopra (2012), and Alice Walker (2010). The conference provides two days of continuing education opportunities in ongoing cultural competency development for psychologists, social workers, counselors, and health care professionals.

In addition to the American Psychological Association Accredited-Doctoral Internship program, the Counseling and Testing Center welcomes an Association of Psychology Postdoctoral and Internship Centers member Postdoctoral Fellowship and a Psychiatry Fellowship through the Emory University School of Medicine. The CTC is accredited by the International Association of Counseling Services.
