The Office of Student Counseling Services (SCS) offers a variety of resources and services that seek to achieve and/or maintain a mentally healthy status for all Miami students, including a learning environment that facilitates and supports that status. Services available to online students include clinical consultation, guidance and referral to mental health treatment providers in the private sector.
The H.O.P.E. Line is available 24/7 to call for immediate support, crisis intervention, and stabilization from a licensed mental health counselor. Campus Care is an option for students who want to consult with a trained mental health professional in a less formal and more convenient setting than a counseling appointment. SCS also offers weekly 30-minute workshops on various topics.
Online mental health resources provide a launching point for more in-depth exploration. Each topic area provides basic information, ways students can help themselves to deal with milder presentations of the concerns, and indications about when professional assistance might be suggested.
