Licensed mental health professionals are available to support and assist students as they cope with personal difficulties that may be interfering with their academic progress. Counseling staff offers crisis intervention, psychoeducational programming, and outreach workshops. Counseling is confidential, short-term, goal-oriented, and free of charge. Personal counselors can also assist students with referrals to outside services in cases where extended therapy or specialized assistance is required. Consultation to faculty, staff and students is also provided.
Confidentiality will be maintained by adherence to the ethical standards of recognized professional organizations. These standards provide, with some limitations, assurance that a student may address his/her concerns openly with the counselor. Confidentiality is discussed with the student when he or she first visits a counselor.
