Programs & Services

Scope of Services

Counseling, Health, & Wellness Services provides outpatient assessment and treatment for a range of psychological and medical conditions. Students should expect that their unique individual and cultural identities are valued, respected, and actively supported by all CHWS staff. We strive to provide the best services possible; however there may be times, when we are not in the position to provide treatment.
If we do not have the appropriate resources for our staff to meet your treatment needs, or if our treatment approaches are not proving effective, we may refer you to appropriate providers outside the college. We are not equipped to provide intensive or long-term mental health care, nor urgent medical care outside of office hours. In such instances, we may refer you to a local urgent care facility, to an emergency department, or to a specialist as necessary. Examples of concerns  where referral may be necessary include but are not limited to: history of multiple hospitalizations, chronic suicidality and/or self-harming behaviors, history of repeated suicide attempts, severity of alcohol or drug use that requires intensive outpatient or inpatient treatment, severity of an eating disorder that requires intensive outpatient or inpatient treatment, evidence of progressive deterioration in ability to function, need for formal psychological evaluation, assessment of learning disability/ADHD or neuropsychological testing, referral for imaging, emergency care or care with a specialist. Court-mandated care, Motor vehicle accidents, and Labor and Industry claims are NOT treated by CHWS.
