The Student Counseling Center provides a safe, affirming, and non-judgmental environment where students can openly share their concerns. Utilizing a short term service model, our services are focused on resources, solutions and strategies to deal with your concerns. We provide individual, group, and couples counseling, outreach activities, as well as psychiatric services. We are staffed by licensed mental health providers as well as having a psychiatric team on site.
Our Commitment to Equity in Mental Health
As a center, we understand the impact of mental health on a college student. Nearly every student experiences something that impacts their sense of well-being while in college and experiences of marginalization and oppression often exacerbate these concerns. Mental health problems can affect many areas of students’ lives, including their quality of life and relationships, academic achievement, physical health and satisfaction with their college experience.
We are also committed to diversity, social justice and equity in mental health. Who we are encompasses a wide range of variables that make up our collective and individual cultural identities, including ethnic/racial identity, nationality, sexual identity, gender identity, gender expression, age, religious/spiritual beliefs, socioeconomic status, body shape/size, and ability status. We recognize and acknowledge the impact that stereotypes, prejudice, discrimination, oppression and marginalization have on mental health, and we are committed to creating a campus community that embraces and celebrates diversity in all its complexity. In our commitment to creating a safe, inclusive environment, you can expect us to be welcoming and affirming.
Our Plans for Comets Giving Campaign
We are raising funds this year to create mental health packages (care kits) for students needing mental health support, especially survivors of interpersonal violence, students returning to campus after hospitalization and students with limited resources. The mental health packages would include gas gift cards, taxi/cab vouchers, mental health related books and materials etc.
If you have additional ideas about additional ways that the Student Counseling Center can utilize funds collected in the Comets Giving Day 2021 Campaign, please contact our Director of Community Engagement, Dr. Prachi Sharma at email@example.com.
