So, what's The House? The House is a confidential student-run peer counseling center offering a variety of free and confidential services to UCD students. The mission of The House is to provide a supportive, relaxed, accessible, and non-judgmental environment for students who wish to explore personal issues and interpersonal problems. The House falls under the administrative umbrella of Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS). It is staffed by student volunteers who receive structured training and supervision from CAPS professionals. The staff believe an integral part of building this supportive environment entails recruiting student volunteers who reflect the general campus community with regard to race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation and majors. Peer staff also receive extensive cross-cultural training from CAPS. This focus on recruitment and training is a critical and valued dimension of The House because it assists peer counselors in responding sensitively and capably to student needs. The House provides free and confidential peer counseling in person and over the telephone.

The House also has a Mind Body Wellness Center. Inside, they have a meditation room, a high-tech relaxation-massage chair, a listening room with a library of mind-body tapes, a biofeedback machine and a SAD lamp. They also have a reading room with comfortable pillows and wellness books. All of the services are free of charge. Please stop by and visit The House.

As such it is very hard for Doctors, Dentists, and Psychiatrists to respond to negative comments on the wiki. Please keep this in mind while reading any comments.
