Consultation for Concerned Others

Consultation for Concerned Others

The Counseling Center staff provides information and other consultative services to persons who are having concerns about others’ well-being and/or behavior.

If you would like to speak to a clinician directly, you may call 512-245-2208 and identify yourself as someone concerned about a student and your relation to that student such as parent, family member, staff, faculty or student. You will be connected to our on-call clinician or a message will be taken and you will receive a return call.

It may be helpful for you to know that the Counseling Center offers both Emergency and Urgent consultation appointments to students if a student has any concerns about their safety or have experienced a recent traumatic event. Click here to read more.

For faculty and staff:

  • If you meet with a student in person you can always inform them of these appointment options, have a student call from your office to schedule an appointment, or walk a student in distress to our center. If you are unable to meet with them, you can share this information by email.
  • When students are in emotional distress, it can be hard to talk about it with them. At Risk is an online, self-paced training for faculty and staff that will help you recognize signs of distress and ways to approach students to offer support and resources. It takes only 30 minutes and you can save your progress and return to it at your convenience.
