Counseling Services Prevention & Outreach Programming
Prevention programming is a service provided by Counseling Services in order to promote the emotional health and wellbeing of the larger university community. Our staff is available to deliver lectures, workshops, and other programming to your class, group, or campus organization. We offer a wide variety of topics, and we are always expanding the list of topics we cover. In addition to stigma reduction, resilience and prevention programming for students, Counseling Services provides consultation and training in a variety of areas to faculty and staff. We also available for general outreach at events such as health fairs or other campus events.

How To Request A Prevention Program
Due to the many responsibilities of CS staff and the large request for services, we request a minimum of ten audience members at each function. Requests received at least one month in advance with at least three possible dates have a greater likelihood of being accommodated. Requests can be made up to one year in advance, and we can accommodate some requests for regularly scheduled functions. Although Prevention Programming is generally scheduled Monday through Friday during regular business hours, we are able to accommodate a small number of events outside of this time. Please contact us for more information.
