Counseling Service

Individual therapy for mental health or addiction concerns is available on campus. Therapy is an outreach service provided by Shannon Stephenson, a registered social worker from the Mental Health and Addiction Program at the Chatham Kent Health Alliance.

Therapy is brief and change oriented. Appointments are usually 50 minutes, and the number of sessions will be determined in collaboration between student and therapist. If you believe you need additional therapy services or longer term therapy, we will do our best to help you connect with appropriate services.

Therapy is strength based and solution focused. It is based on helping you thrive in current circumstances, rather than exploring past experiences.

Long term support is not available. We have a variety of community partners and will do our best to help you find long term support with the most appropriate resource.

The first step to accessing services is an assessment appointment. During this appointment, the therapist will ask questions to understand your concerns and discuss options. Options may include on campus therapy, referral to an external resources, or other supports. Students and therapists work collaboratively to determine the next steps to meet identified concerns.
