4.Q:Is night or noon available for personal counseling?

   A:The center is open from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Tuesday for counseling. Since there is not any counselor shift at noon, personal counseling will not be available. But if you have any emergency, you can contact the center and there will be professional people to solve your problem.
