PACS provides a range of interactive workshops and other educational programming. The goal of these services are twofold: Prevention and Education. Through these services, PACS seeks to disseminate knowledge and promote mental health and overall wellness.
Psychological and Counseling Services
Psychiatric services at PACS are provided by a consulting psychiatrist. A PACS clinician may make a referral to the psychiatrist when it is believed that medication could be beneficial in addition to counseling. If appropriate, the psychiatrist can prescribe and monitor the use of psychotropic medications for students currently receiving counseling services at PACS.
A mental health emergency is an emotional or behavioral crisis that warrants same day attention by a mental health professional. This may include, but is not limited to, significant changes in behavior that are not characteristic of a person, the presence of disruptive symptoms that interfere with the responsibilities of daily living, direct or indirect expressions of the intent to harm self or others, or the experience of a trauma. The Counseling Center provides emergency services 24 hours per day.
The Counseling Center attempts to meet the emotional and mental health needs of the campus community by reaching out to those who may not seek counseling services. Our Consultation and Outreach activities include educational programs and classes, committee participation, and clinical consultation. Staff members are available to consult with faculty, staff, parents, or students who may be concerned about a student.
Individual Counseling assists students in resolving issues causing emotional distress and, as such, interfere with personal goals and academic success. Sessions are free to students.
