Abstract

The importance of psychological services in tertiary institutions cannot be overemphasized. These services are provided in many forms to mitigate the impacts of difficulties faced by students such as relationship problems, addictions and substance abuse, depression, anxiety, stress and self-esteem issues; critical incident and trauma responses, seminars and training are organised for students to arm them against things that impact negatively on their stay on campus. Using a sample drawn from Technical Universities in Ghana, the paper investigated the availability of psychological services, logistics that enhance service delivery, and the modes of assessing these services. The study revealed that deficiencies exist regarding availability and efficiency of these psychological services. The results further showed that many students were not aware of the existence of the Counseling services. The paper recommends the need to start and intensify awareness campaigns of Counseling and psychological services and encourage students to seek counselling when they face challenges while on campus.
