Online counseling on the Statesboro campus

Celeste Chapman, Correspondent

STATESBORO — The Georgia Southern counseling center is providing all services through telemental health for the fall semester.

Services provided through telemental health by the counseling center include intakes, individual/couples/group therapy, same-day solution sessions, after-hours crisis response and drop-in workshops.

In compliance with social distancing, this means that all services will be held through video conferencing such as Zoom and Google Meet.

Although a team of counselors is on-campus, no in-person services will be provided except for emergencies requiring safety assessments.

According to the counseling center website, “Telemental health means that students have a wider range of counselors, groups, and workshops to choose from than they would typically (since campus of attendance is irrelevant to telemental health services).”

September is Suicide Prevention Month, so the counseling center is hosting events throughout the month.

Listed below are the workshops and group therapy programs that the Counseling Center is providing for students this semester. A completed intake session is required for group therapy but not for workshops.
