Staff members at the Counseling Center are knowledgeable about resources available to students both on-campus and within the community. If we are not able to meet your needs or if you just would rather see someone outside of the Counseling Center, we can help by making an appropriate referral.
When in assessment the counselor finds the need for a medical help and/or psychological evaluation may be made as appropriate. Sahayam will enable the person to connect to the Psychiatrist or Clinical Psychologist as and when the need is felt and support counseling is offered .
Sometimes crisis situations are so serious that treatment in a psychiatric hospital or some other 24hour treatment facility is necessary to ensure your safety and stabilize your situation. If your counselor determines that you need such intensive types of care, he/she may help you arrange admission to an appropriate facility.
If you go to such a treatment facility, your Counseling Center staff member may stay in touch with the facility to make sure that appropriate mental health services are available to you after you are discharged. After you are discharged, it is extremely important for you to attend any follow- up treatment sessions that your counselor arranges for you.
