How to Refer to Counseling Services
If you are concerned about a student, we suggest that you encourage him or her to come to Counseling Services, and fill out a Request for Services to discuss the situation.
Here are some helpful ways to refer a student:
- Suggest that the student come to Counseling Services, Monday through Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
- Call the main line (ext. 3131) while you are with the student in order to facilitate contact. The student can then speak to someone regarding services.
- Walk the student over to the Counseling Services, located in the modular unit behind Pacelli Hall. If this is an emergency, a counselor will speak to the student immediately.
Please remember that the communication between a counselor and client is confidential. Without written consent from the student, we cannot and do not discuss the details of a student's situation or even the fact that the student is in counseling.
