Outreach Programs And Presentations

Students, faculty and staff may consult with the Counseling Center regarding the mental health aspects of various student-related issues. Outreach programs can be modified to fit the special needs or concerns of various student groups. Upon request, we will gladly create specific programs geared toward improvement of the mental health and overall success of our campus community. In the past, requested topics have included time/stress management, goal setting, understanding depression, helping a distressed student/friend, test anxiety, motivation, communication in relationships, demystifying mental illness, and dealing with grief/loss.

In order to make a request, please complete the Outreach Request Form and drop it off at the Counseling Center.
