NOTICE: Counseling Center operations for March 13-29
The Counseling Center is currently making every effort to contact each client who has an appointment scheduled during the next 2 weeks. Clients will be offered the following options: 1) If the client is in the vicinity of the Counseling Center, they can keep their already scheduled appointment and meet in person, 2) If the client has either left town or does not want to come to campus for their appointment, arrangements can be made for a telemental health session, 3) If the client is not interested in either option, referral resources can be provided.
Telemental health is not available for Intake appointments, as best practice dictates that clients be seen face to face to determine their appropriateness for this service. Thus, any student who has an intake appointment between now and March 29, and is not able to come to the counseling center, will have their intake rescheduled.
The counseling center is not scheduling any new appointments until after March 29.
All students are reminded that the Counseling Center maintains 24/7 crisis access. Students can call during business hours and request to be transferred to the crisis counselor, or when the center is closed, can call 912-478-5541 and select option 2 from the voicemail menu. In addition, students can access the free Georgia Crisis and Access Line at 1-800-715-4225 for either crisis assistance or assistance with locating a mental health resource in their area.
During the next two weeks, all therapy groups and drop-in workshops will be closed. These services will resume when the university resumes standard operations.
