Bucknell University cares about supporting the mental health needs of our students. The Counseling & Student Development Center is a place for students to discuss personal, academic or vocational concerns. Counselors are professionally trained and licensed. Services are available to students at no cost. Psychologists, counselors and social workers are bound both ethically and legally to honor confidentiality except in situations where there exists the potential of harm to yourself or others or there is evidence of current abuse of a child or vulnerable adult. We are committed to providing psychological services that are sensitive to each individual and to differences based on gender, race, culture, socioeconomic background, sexual orientation and spiritual belief.
The CSDC is currently providing counseling and other mental health services by video and in-person appointments.Counselors are available weekdays for phone consultations to discuss concerns and available support resources at the CSDC and within the campus community. Support remains available 24/7 for urgent mental health needs by calling 570-577-1604 and choosing Option 2 to speak with the on-call counselor.
All staff and students will be required to adhere to all recommended health guidelines in the event of in-person meetings.
The CSDC website has resources including information about caring for yourself and others, tolerating uncertainty, coping with grief and loss, self-compassion, recognizing a student in distress, and how to ask for help.
