The Counseling Center staff can provide limited virtual services dependent on individual client circumstances which would otherwise prohibit their access to treatment and which indicate a clinical need to receive services specifically from Center staff (as opposed to other virtual service providers to include TimelyCare).
Under some circumstances, virtual services can be contraindicated for a student, meaning that it could be harmful, based on their particular clinical needs. Should that apply to a student who cannot access in-person services in the Center, staff will make appropriate community-based referrals for in-person services.
Brief Needs Assessment
Brief Needs Assessment are the starting point for all non-crisis, clinical services at the Counseling Center. During the appointment the student will work with a clinician to determine which services are the best fit to effectively address the student’s concerns. Brief Needs Assessment last 15 to 30 minutes. Prior to the start of the appointment, students are asked to complete basic forms, which take 5 to 10 minutes.
Students can access Brief Needs Assessment by scheduling or coming in during walk-in hours. Walk-in hours are Monday through Friday from 10 am to 12 pm and 1 pm to 3 pm. Students can schedule by coming into the office, room 263 in the GSU, calling 410-543-6070, or by scheduling online during our hours of operation (Monday through Friday from 8 am until 4:30 pm.)
