Appointments

Appointments are necessary and can be scheduled by phone or in person. To schedule an appointment by phone, please call the CHD office at 603-646-9442. For CANCELLATIONS, please notify us as soon as possible, preferably 24 hours in advance.

At your first appointment, you will meet with a counselor to discuss your personal concerns and expectations from counseling.  The counselor with ask questions that will help to clarify immediate issues.  At the end of the session, you and your counselor will discuss treatment options that will best address your needs.  These options may include: individual counseling, group therapy, psychiatric medication evaluation, or a referral to an off-campus mental health provider. 

Appointments are made as quickly as possible after the request.  Students may request a specific counselor on the basis of gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or professional training, but it may mean a longer wait until such a counselor becomes available.

EMERGENCY services are available on a 24-hour basis every day of the year. Please call the Counseling Office at the number noted above. If the emergency is after normal business hours, please listen carefully to our voice mail message to be directed to the on-call counseling team member.
