Education and Outreach

Counseling Services provides programs, workshops, outreach, and screenings throughout the academic year that emphasize prevention, wellness, and student self-help. We work collaboratively with other staff and programs within the campus community as well as with other departments to enhance the general campus climate. Various topics addressed this academic year through our education and outreach initiatives include suicide prevention, smoking cessation, decision making around drugs and alcohol, healthy relationships, stress management/self-care and emotional wellness.
