My SSP: Student Support Program

​Attending college, graduate school or professional school is an exciting life experience. It can also be a time of change, adjustment and stress. Because DePaul knows how important it is to take care of ourselves and each other, we have partnered with My SSP to provide mental health and well-being resources to students with a call center and chat feature, 24 hours a day, seven days a week and 365 days a year.​

Download the My SSP app!

The easiest way to access the service is to download the free My SSP app. DePaul University has made My SSP services available from Morneau Shepell for all students, regardless of where you may be residing. You can download the My SSP app from either the Apple App Store or Google Play.

My SSP can help address common concerns such as:

  • Adapting to a new culture
  • Being successful at school
  • Relationships with friends and family
  • Stress, worry, sadness, loneliness and much more!

Students can now receive support:

  • 24 hours a day, 7 days a week via phone or chat
  • From a Student Support Counselor that understands their unique challenges
  • Multilingual support available
  • At no cost to the student!

Student information is confidential so no one – including family, friends, or professors – will ever know a student used the program unless they choose to tell them.

On Campus Counseling Services

University Counseling Services support is still available to all currently enrolled DePaul ​students. Services include brief individual and group counseling, crisis counseling and referrals to community mental health providers.

UCS services to students living outside of the state or the country may be limited by state licensing laws, and therefore, the services offered by My SSP may be a good match. Regardless, all students can contact UCS’ main number to schedule an initial phone consultation at​  773-325-7779. See go.depaul.edu/ucs for more information.
