Community Intervention

The UT Student Counseling Center is committed to reaching out to all UT students, faculty and staff.  We work together with a variety of campus departments, offices and organizations to address the mental health needs of the entire campus community.  This is done in a variety of ways including:

  1. providing psycho- educational presentations  on topics such as QPR Suicide Prevention, working with distressed students, accessing Student Counseling Center services, and coping in stressful situations,
  2. creating and offering stress and wellness workshops on topics such as assertiveness, time management, and self-care for wellbeing,
  3. providing community support for University events such as university wellness fairs,  Welcome Week, Take Back the Night, and Parent’s Weekend,
  4. forming liaison relationships with other campus departments such as Housing, Athletics, and Greek Life in order to better meet students’ mental health and/or wellness needs,
  5. working on Campus committees such as the GLBT Commission, VolAware, and the Student Affairs Diversity Committee,
  6. sponsoring campus programs focusing on mental health and wellness such as the annual VolAware Street Fair and the annual Wellness Fair, and
  7. providing psychological consultation to the campus community.
