Personal Counseling is offered to help enrolled students cope with the stressors that may be affecting their academic, career, or professional goals. These stressors can result in anxiety, depression, drug/alcohol use, panic attacks, relationship difficulties, anger, lack of motivation, grief, parenting issues, domestic violence, sexual assault, life transitions, or any other problems that may influence a student’s well-being.
Relationship counseling works with couples, individuals, and families to resolve differences and to increase communication skills between members. Family and personal relationships are important factors in psychological health.
Based on the needs of the student, counseling includes individual and/or group counseling, drug diversion, and assistance in residential and non-residential treatment placement.
Free interactive trainings on how to work with students who are in emotional distress and PTSD are available.
These online interactive trainings are designed to help college faculty, staff, and students recognize the warning signs of emotional distress and PTSD in students that can lead to self-harm and/or harm to others.
The trainings will provide learners ways to approach at-risk students, veteran students, and/or LGBTQ students for referral to the appropriate mental health, administrative and/or student services.
Each training takes about 30-60 minutes and engages learners in conversations with emotionally responsive student avatars that exhibit signs of psychological distress.
