The Reaching Out Handbook has been created for the purpose of providing you with information about Counseling Services, about other campus resources, and how to most effectively assist individuals in distress.
Our goal is to help you recognize some of the symptoms of individual distress, as well as provide some specific options for intervention and for referral to campus resources. We are available to assist you with problem situations and to consult with you on whether to intervene with a particular individual and when to refer.
Guidelines are offered but each individual will need to consider what is appropriate in a given situation. Basic topics covered in this manual include; identifying individuals in distress, ways of dealing with these individuals, and how to refer them for counseling. Dealing with the reluctant individual, scheduling an appointment with Counseling Services, and confidentiality issues are also discussed. A list of campus referral resources, including Counseling Services, is listed at the beginning of this guide.
