Consultation & Educational Programs

In addition to our clinical services, the Counseling Center provides a range of educational programs to promote mental health and wellness throughout the campus community. Counseling Center clinicians are also available for consultation regarding mental health issues.

Scheduling a Consultation or Program

Outreach and discussions are tailored to the individual interests of the group and often focus on a particular counseling related topic, preventative strategies, or available resources.

Educational workshops and other presentations are available to the College community. We consult by advising student groups, serving on panels, and speaking at presentations on issues of importance to the community. When a crisis occurs, we meet with affected community members to provide support and group facilitation.

Please contact the Counseling Center if you are interested in having us do a presentation. You  can reach us by phone, 603-646-9442, or email, Counseling@Dartmouth.edu.

  • Campus Connect Gatekeeper suicide prevention training
  • Sexual Assault Peer Alliance (SAPA) training
  • DP2 Sports Nutrition education
  • DP2 Sports Mental Health education

Examples of consultation requests:

  • A professor is concerned about the gradual decline in a student's performance and classroom behavior and wants to find out what to do

Nutrition & Eating Disorders

The Dartmouth College Health Service is equipped to provide an outpatient level of care for students struggling with eating disorders or related concerns. We believe the best approach to this mental health issue should involve professional disciplines that can treat the whole patient (body and mind).

We have established a team of professionals who serve as consultants to oversee the care of students identified as struggling with eating concerns or seeking care at the Health Service. The mission of our team is to motivate students with eating disorders/disordered eating to seek treatment and to provide consistent and interdisciplinary quality care to students at risk for serious health complications.
