Sending your students off to school for the first time can be an emotionally difficult experience for families. Concerns about his or her safety and well being are common place. Rest assured, students have many supports (from both Student Services and Academics) in place on campus to help them along the way. Every student is given many options for assistance when faced with difficulties. Counseling Services (CS) is one of these options.
Please call Counseling Services at (203) 576-4454 if you would like to discuss any mental health related concerns you might have regarding your students. It is important to recognize that CS staff will be unable to disclose any private information we have about a specific student due to our Confidentiality practices and CT Privacy Laws. However, as families you are not prohibited from sharing information with our professional staff if you have a concern. We routinely reach out to students after families contact us. We recommend that families also call their students directly to address any concerns they might have. This may include asking your students to check in with CS.
If you have immediate concerns after office hours, please call campus security at (203) 576-4911 and a counselor on call will be notified.
