Help for Distressed Students

Faculty and staff are often the first point of contact for students experiencing emotional difficulties and can play extremely important roles in referring students for help. We hope this virtual brochure will be helpful to you if you encounter distressed or disruptive students in your classes or other settings and need to know how to get them to the appropriate resources on campus.  Counselors are available for consultations to help faculty and staff refer a student to the Counseling Center.

Additionally, please do not hesitate to contact the Counseling Center to learn more about the range of services we offer to students to help them tend to their mental health.  Please know that students can be seen without an appointment from 3:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. daily for Counseling Center “Drop-In” Hours.
