Mental Health Counseling on Campus

ANNOUNCEMENT

 

As part of Student Services, mental health counseling services are currently offered in the Student Health Center, Bldg. 100, Room 120.  These services are free to our registered students.  Please refer your students for assistance who may benefit from our services. 

 

There is a short intake process with the Health Center Nurse Practitioner to ascertain any physical or medical issues, then the referral is made to the Mental Health Counselors.  Counselor schedules vary and students are served on a first-come/first-served basis unless they are in crisis, if in crisis they are given priority assistance.  Now is an excellent time to make this general announcement about services to students because we have appointments available.

 

Brief examples of some of the issues that student request assistance with are:

          Stress

          Anxiety

          Relationships/Family

          Depression

          Anger

          Loneliness

          Panic

          Helplessness/Hopelessness

          Sleep Disorders

          Weight gain/loss

          Internet gambling

              And more

         

We offer classroom presentations during the semester. If you are interested, please return this email and let us know when a Mental Health Counselor can come to your classroom to provide a short presentation of the services available.  It is sometimes helpful for students to connect the face of a staff member with the services; it is less threatening somehow.  Over the years, we have also provided specific presentations for classrooms upon request such as stress relief, anxiety coping strategies and other topics.  Feel free to call me if you have a specific request.  I am available for consultation as needed.

 

To schedule a class presentation, that takes about 10-15 minutes, please provide the class, day, time and room number in your email.  We will confirm a presentation date with you.
