Some of the issues that may be addressed include: Homesickness, struggles with career choices, trouble in relationships, thoughts of suicide, violence, drugs and alcohol, pregnancy, death in family, financial pressures, gender identity, and mental illness. Some of these issues can be quickly addressed with minimal follow-up required, while others will many times involve longer-term counseling combined with additional services to assist the student. If additional services are needed, students will be referred to local mental health agencies for further assistance.
