Contacting the Center
Midshipmen should feel free to call us (x4897) or stop by the Midshipmen Development Center anytime Monday through Friday from 730-1600 to make first contact or just to ask any questions you have. The Midshipmen Development Center is located in the 8th wing mezzanine on the seaward side next to Optometry and above Physical Therapy. You do not need a referral from medical or your chain of command to make an appointment (the only exception to this is plebe summer.) Additionally, you can request an appointment online by filling out the "First Time Counselor Appointments" form.
When you contact the Center, we will ask you to fill out a questionnaire that helps us pair you with the counselor most qualified to help you. You will be offered an initial appointment that will be coordinated working around your busy schedule.
While appointments are tailored to your specific need and circumstances, most counseling is short-term, generally 2-6 sessions, and geared toward building your own skills in resolving the problems that brought you to the Center.
