Helping you Help Another Student
We provide consultation services for University students, faculty, staff, and family members who are concerned about the unusual, problematic, or potentially harmful behavior of others. During the consultation, you will speak with a clinician about your concerns. That can be in-person or over the phone. Since counselors are not normally the first people students turn to when they have problems, you are probably in an great position to provide helpful information.
The clinician you speak to will assit you in creating a plan about how you could be respond to the individual in distress. That could involve offering support, discussing available resources, referring them to professional counseling, contacting the Dean of Students, as well as a variety of other outcomes. If the situation requires additional assistance from a campus or community professional, we will support you through that process. Please refer to our Consultation form for additional information.
You can access our consultation services by calling our front desk at 540-568-6552 during business hours. If you need to consult about a mental health emergency, we also offer Emergency Services.
