Educational Programs and Consultation

In addition to our clinical services, CHD clinicians provide a range of educational programs to promote mental health and wellness throughout the campus community.  CHD clinicians are also available for consultation regarding mental health issues.

Examples of educational programs are:

  • how to deal with stress, perfectionism and procrastination
  • depression and suicide in college students

Examples of consultation requests are:

  • a student wants to know how to talk with a friend who has an eating disorder
  • a professor is concerned about the gradual decline in a student's performance and classroom behavior and wants to find out what to do

We are very active in providing outreach to groups on campus. Outreach and discussions are tailored to the individual interests of the group and often focus on a particular counseling related topic, preventative strategies or available resources.

We consult by advising student groups, serving on panels, and speaking at presentations on issues of importance to the community. When a crisis occurs, we meet with affected community members to provide support and group facilitation.

Please contact our office at 603-646-9442 if you are interested in having us do a presentation.

Recovery Groups/Meetings:

Educational workshops and other presentations are available to the College community. Resources are available to help students deal with issues related to alcohol and drug use and misuse.

Nutrition & Eating Disorders:

Dartmouth College Health Services is equipped to provide an outpatient level of care for students struggling with eating disorders or related concerns. We believe the best approach to this mental health issue should involve professional disciplines that can treat the whole patient (body and mind). Therefore, we have established a team of professionals that serve as consultants to oversee the care of students identified as struggling with eating concerns or seeking care at Dick's House. The mission of our team is to motivate students with eating disorders/disordered eating to seek treatment and to provide consistent and interdisciplinary quality care to students at risk for serious health complications.

For a self-assessment of eating behaviors, see our self-assessment questionnaire. To make an appointment to see the nutritionist please call 603-646-9442.

Sexual Abuse Awareness Program:

Dartmouth College recognizes that sexual abuse is a significant issue for college-age women and men. This program has been established in order to educate women and men on this campus about issues of communication and consent, sexism, date rape, sexual abuse and harassment, and assault.
