Consultation and Interview Services
The SCS staff offers clinical consultation to concerned Miami University faculty, staff, and students working with emotional concerns of our students.
Informational Consultation and Interviews
Students, faculty and staff sometimes find that they would benefit from obtaining more information regarding psychological topics frequently dealt with at the SCS, such as body image concerns, panic attacks, or use and abuse of alcohol, for example. Students sometimes request interviews to learn more about the helping professions and training in psychological services.
When seeking general information about a psychological concern, please first consult Student Counseling Mental Health Topics for access to selected links providing extensive information on most common psychological concerns.
If you are unable to find the information you are seeking on our webpage, informational brochures on some common topics are available at the reception desk. Contact the SCS for more information on what brochures are available.
Finally, the staff at SCS will respond directly to informational requests whenever possible. Please understand that clinical and critical consultation issues take precedence during busy times of the semester. We ask for a minimum of one week’s notice when you make informational requests for student academic papers, newspaper columns and articles for academic purposes, to create bulletin boards, and for other general informational and academic purposes. At certain high-demand times of the academic year (e.g., the latter weeks of the semester), SCS staff may not be available to respond to these consultation requests due to urgency of clinical demand for staff time. We will then refer you to other helpful sources to obtain the requested information.
