In addition to providing personal and group counseling services, Counseling & Psychological Services provides consultation services to faculty, staff, parents, and students.
Consultation services include:
One-on-one consultation with faculty and staff members as well as parents and fellow students concerning ways to respond to student problems.
Gatekeeper Training for Faculty and Staff. Faculty and staff members or departments interested in learning more about how to identify, respond to, and refer students in distress or at risk for suicide or other major mental health issues can call CAPS at 704‑687‑0311.
Our "gatekeeper training" programs include the following:
At Risk for Faculty is an online, interactive gatekeeper training simulation used at more than 85 campuses nationwide. In this 45-minute training, faculty and staff learn the common indicators of psychological distress and how best to approach an at-risk student for referral to the counseling center.
Campus Connect: A Suicide Prevention Training for Gatekeepers is a 3-hour, experientially-based gatekeeper training program for college and university faculty, staff, and students. Group consultations with departments or entities, focused on specific concerns or traning goals, are also available on request.
Dissemination of information about campus and community resources and referral procedures.
Crisis response when special needs arise due to situation concerns or campus-wide crisis events.
