The student counseling service is available to all Simon's Rock students during the academic year. There is no fee for these services. Students may schedule appointments for brief consultations or ongoing psychotherapy. There are drop-in hours scheduled throughout the week, and counselors are available for emergency consultations as needed. A consulting psychiatrist is available for medication, evaluation and treatment. All contacts with the counseling center staff are held in strict confidence.
In addition, there are several adjunct staff members who can be available on a weekly basis for individual, family, or group therapy. In most cases, student health insurance and private insurance may be used to cover all or part of the cost of off-campus referrals.
When there is sufficient student interest, the counseling service also offers workshops or groups on such topics as alcohol and drug use, eating disorders, intimate relationships and sexuality, date rape and sexual abuse, and women's and men's issues.
Students may make appointments for counseling through the counseling center receptionist, or directly with each counselor.
