Counseling Center offers new initiative
Starting this Monday, October 30, the Counseling Center is excited to offer a new initiative for connecting students to mental health services called “Pop-Up Drop-In.”
“Pop-Up Drop-In” is an outreach program designed to interact with students who do not access traditional counseling services. This innovative outreach effort will provide brief, informal and convenient opportunities for students to meet with counselors at various sites across campus and help reduce some barriers to seeking help. Our hope is to reach students who may be reluctant to access counseling services, may not know about our services, question whether they or someone they know could benefit from counseling services, or have a general question about mental health. The primary goal is to engage with students by meeting them where they are at and creating a less formal link to counseling support or services. No appointment is required. Students just drop in at the locations and times listed below and on the flyer to the left.
“Pop-Up Drop-In” times and locations for the fall semester are as follows:
- Old Main second Floor: Mondays m. – 1p.m., room 209 (near Campus Ministry)
- Koessler Athletic Center second Floor: Wednesdays 4 – 6 p.m. (Room 227-across from weight room)
We hope you will assist us in promoting this initiative. By doing so, you are supporting a climate on campus that normalizes accessing mental health services and gives students better access to help.
If you have any questions, call Mike Cammarata, associate director of the Counseling Center, at Ext 2620.
