The Counseling Center remains committed to supporting students emotional growth and wellbeing. We are actively working to move all contact to be via teletherapy (phone or HIPAA approved Zoom). We will work with students individually to help facilitate services at the Counseling Center or with a provider in their local community. If you would like to schedule a phone triage appointment, or have questions about current services, please call our office at 603-646-9442.
We continue providing the following:
o Triage appointments to help determine treatment options, which may include short-term teletherapy or a referral to a local provider.
o For students who have an established relationship with one of our psychiatrists, we are providing psychiatric medication evaluations and med checks (when appropriate). For other students, please call our office to speak to a counselor to review treatment options.
o Anxiety Toolbox Workshop via Zoom.
o On-Call services 24/7 - Nursing Department (IPD) - (603) 646-9440
o Coordinator of our Nutrition Program will provide teleconsultation.
Counseling is a process that can help people identify more effective strategies both to cope with difficult situations and to achieve their goals. While some people who seek counseling have chronic emotional difficulties, most are dealing with normal life events and are simply in need of an objective listener- someone who doesn't judge and who can help them see new alternatives.
College life can be challenging and is often stressful. Students experience those challenges in a number of different ways: difficulties adjusting to college, confusion in deciding on a major or career path, struggles in relationships, or making friends, or getting along with a roommate. Many students feel anxious, depressed, confused, or overwhelmed at some point during their college experience and need help dealing with feelings and problems that seem beyond their control. For college students, that help may come from friends, family members, significant others, etc., but in some cases, help is needed from a trained professional.
