The Counseling & Student Development Center is one of several emergency support systems available in the case of a crisis.
The Counseling & Student Development Center is here to help you find the services that will best meet your needs.
Group counseling gathers approximately five to 10 students to meet each weekly. These sessions are led by Counseling & Student Development Center staff.
Monday–Friday, 3–4 p.m.
The Counseling & Student Development Center offers services on a scheduled appointment basis. For students who feel unable to wait for a regularly scheduled appointment, brief, one-time walk-in consultation appointments are also available weekday afternoons. These 15- to 30-minute appointments give the counselor an opportunity to make contact with a student and to determine how to best assist them.
Students who wish to meet with our consulting psychiatrist must first meet with a staff counselor to discuss their concerns and to determine if a referral for psychiatric consultation is appropriate. Ongoing psychiatric treatment is only provided for students who are also working with a counselor at the Counseling & Student Development Center. Our psychiatric providers do not prescribe controlled substances (including stimulants and benzodiazepines).
Alcohol & Other Drug Assessment
The Counseling & Student Development Center offers an assessment to help students critically examine their patterns of alcohol and drug use in a judgment-free environment. As part of this assessment, students complete the BASICS (Brief Alcohol Screening and Intervention for College Students) program, which is evidence-based and has been shown to be an effective intervention. Schedule an appointment to take the assessment.
Healthy Eating Assessment & Referral Team (HEART)
HEART offers a program of coordinated care to help students address food, weight and body image concerns.
Occasionally, students prefer to work with a counselor in the surrounding community or may wish to work with a counselor at home over winter break, during the summer or when on leave. Our staff can help students to find a counselor in the Lewisburg area or in the student’s home community.
Counseling & Student Development Center staff are available to present lectures, workshops and programs to your group, organization or class.
Counseling & Student Development Center staff offer consultation services to faculty, staff, parents, families and students regarding the psychological welfare of a particular student, as well as more general concerns (i.e., group dynamics following a crisis).
