- Single Sessions Single sessions are appointments during which mental health care providers meet with students to discuss strategies for concerns that can be addressed in one session.
- Group Counseling Group counseling connects students with peers facing similar circumstances or challenges. Sessions are held weekly for 60-90 minutes to teach coping techniques and provide support.
