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.
