SSM 601–04: Outreach Programs and Consultation
To describe and explain service goals in providing outreach programming and consultation to the campus community
A part of the mission of ASU Counseling Services is to provide preventive and educational interventions through outreach programming and workshops. The first role of outreach programming is to support and enhance the learning environment for students at ASU. The second is to facilitate learning by students through psycho-educational presentations aimed at minimizing, preventing, or intervening in psychological concerns that may affect academic progress.
ASU Counseling Services also partners with, and provides referrals to, programming offered by other ASU entities that offer workshops and presentations on topics such as sexual assault, substance use/abuse, eating disorders and body image concerns, and sexuality issues.
In some cases, fees may be charged to students participating in workshops. For more information, contact ASU Counseling Services.
One of the goals of ASU Counseling Services is to provide leadership in promoting positive systems change and growth within the ASU community. The staff at ASU Counseling Services has developed consultation and liaison relationships with a number of campus agencies, departments, and student organizations. Counseling staff interacts with parents, faculty, and staff who are concerned about the well-being of an ASU student. Examples include concerns about students exhibiting a decline in academic functioning, displaying unusual behavior, or presenting safety concerns on campus, in a residence hall, or in a classroom.
In situations in which multiple students experience a traumatic event, ASU Counseling Services staff is available to meet and assist individuals as well as to provide any needed follow-up mental health services. Consultation services are provided at no charge.
See the ASU Counseling Services Web site for detailed information on services provided.
