Mental Health Counseling
How do I make an appointment for Counseling Services?
You can do one of three things:
- Call a Health and Wellness Counseling at 607.844.6577 to schedule a consultation with our Case Manager and learn about our services including counseling.
- Visit the Health and Wellness Counseling in Room 122.
- Email Health and Wellness Counseling at email@example.com and we will call you to schedule an appointment with our Case Manager.
- • Counseling utilizes a short-term model of therapy that is brief and solution-focused.
- • In most cases, it is expected that sessions will be limited to six sessions per semester and will focus on resources, solutions, and strategies to manage student’s presenting problem or challenge.
- • The first counseling session is called an intake appointment and after signing consent forms and gathering information, the Clinical Counselor will work with each student to determine their goals and next steps.
- • Depending on concerns and goals, counseling may consist of one or several sessions.
- • Students who require long-term and/or intensive support will generally be referred to community resources for ongoing treatment.
- • Health and Wellness utilizes a Stepped Care approach to mental health, which means we likely have one of more opportunities that will provide you support in a way that is comfortable and effective. Meet with our Case Manager to learn more.
- • If there is an immediate threat to self or others, physical injury or a safety concern, call 607.272.1838 or call Campus Police at 607.844.6511. If you are off campus, call 607.272.1838 or visit your nearest emergency room.
- • If you feel like you are in a non-life threatening crisis, please visit the Health Center, Room 118A or the Wellness Center, Room 122 where you can receive immediate support.
