What you as a student can expect from your first appointment
at the Counseling and Wellness Center
Your first appointment at the CWC will begin with a 20 minute triage appointment with a staff clinician. The clinician will help assess the nature and urgency of your problem so that we can help you make the most appropriate next step to assist you.
When you contact our office you will be scheduled for this 20 minute face to face triage appointment. This is a specific time reserved for you. At the end of the session, appropriate options will be reviewed with you. These could include an appointment at the CWC and/or a referral to other resources on campus or in the community that can help you address your concerns.
We're going green! Starting September 1, 2010 all students with new appointments must complete the Intake forms online! By 5pm the day before your appointment, students with first-time (triage) appointments will receive an email notice from our Appointment Desk about the appointment. The email message will contain a link to our online forms website.
Crisis and urgent appointments are available when needed. CWC is a short term counseling agency. If you need or are interested in a longer term therapy relationship, we can advise you about setting up services in the community.
