Our Referral Coordinator is available for students and their families who would like assistance connecting with mental health services, including individual therapy, group therapy, and medication management. CCSD may refer a student off-campus if, in the clinician’s judgment, the student’s counseling requirements fall beyond the scope of our services.
When you meet with the Referral Coordinator, your needs and preferences with regard to an outside therapist will be assessed. You’ll discuss topics such as whether or not you will be using insurance, whether you need to walk or would be willing to take public transportation, and how quickly you need an appointment. If you would like to include family members in the process, or to have insurance benefits explained, the Referral Coordinator can assist with those considerations as well.
Once a referral has been generated and/or an initial appointment with an outside therapist has been scheduled, the Referral Coordinator will follow up with you to ensure the match was a good one and to make sure all of your questions have been addressed. Through our robust referral program, the CCSD strives to address the needs of students presenting with mental health concerns, whether those needs are best served by one of our own clinicians or by an outside provider.
If you perceive an immediate danger or risk of suicide, call 911 for immediate assistance.
Students can also reach mental health support 24 hours a day on the UD Helpline or the Crisis Text Line.
