Even MORE ways to help...
Seek out and use Counseling Services resources as appropriate. You are welcome to borrow any of our self-help materials, including books, CDs, and more.
- Share with your students this brochure, "A Guide to the College Transition."
Refer students to our "Healthy Bodies, Healthy Minds" series through GOLD as well as our other Current Programs. Help spread the word about our outreach activities via your class, department, or organization.
- Recommend our Online Screening Program to students. Students can take anonymous online screenings for depression, anxiety, eating disorders, and alcohol/other drug use.
