Request an Outreach

The Counseling Center is committed to sharing our passion for personal growth and wellbeing with the entire VSU community by offering 2 outreach models:

1. We offer the Mental Minutes student service to faculty. Mental Minutes is a 10 minute, specialized presentation available upon faculty request during class time. A member of the VSU Counseling Center staff will provide a brief presentation—requiring no technology—and give helpful handouts to each student. Mental Minutes is designed for minimal classroom disruption while ensuring that VSU students are equipped in the following areas: Time Management, Study Skills, Test Anxiety, Stress Management, How to Help a Friend, Healthy Relationships, and more.

2. We offer Outreach Presentations that can be designed for specific groups, so we are available to plan and deliver programs of interest to classes, residence halls, campus offices, or organizations. We are eager to meet the needs of students, and upon request will plan specific programs of interest for particular organizations. Additionally, we are prepared to provide professional staff development workshops for faculty and staff groups. We also provide training workshops for student leaders, resident assistants, pledge trainers, orientation leaders, and other campus groups. Faculty members can request presentations that address the concerns of college students and that complement course content. Center staff members will also consult with faculty members to develop programs suitable to their instructional needs.
