    TAMPA — With wait times at university counseling centers spilling into the four-week range across the state, Florida's universities made an appeal.

    Dark clouds loom over the University of South Florida campus, where officials say they are working to alleviate a shortage of mental health counselors in time for the 2017-18 school year.

The Legislature declined extra funding this year to address the problem, leaving individual schools to figure out solutions on their own. [Times files]
