CSU Health Network Counseling Services recognized by the Employee Appreciation Board

The CSU Employee Appreciation Board recognized Counseling Services in the CSU Health Network for their exemplary service on April 3.

This dedicated group has a wide range of services and counsels fee-paying students on the Fort Collins campus regarding areas like situational problems, immediate crisis, and longstanding mental health.

In a time of need

The caring staff is composed of licensed psychologists, licensed clinical social workers, and licensed professional counselors, as well as new professionals working toward licensure and graduate student staff completing their degrees in a mental health field.The group was nominated by Kate Jeracki, editor and content manager for the Division of External Relations, for going above and beyond following the tragic death of CSU student Savannah McNealy.

Jeracki wrote, “The counseling staff fanned out across campus to the departments where she worked and had classes to provide immediate assistance to students, faculty and staff most directly affected by the loss. They also set up a satellite location in the LSC as well as taking walk-in appointments at the CSU Health and Medical Center, staying long extra hours to provide crucial counseling services in a time of tragedy and grief to any and all in need.”

Supportive space

Counseling Services is deeply committed to creating a welcoming, supportive space in which individuals can truly be seen and valued in their entirety. Counseling Services stresses they want everyone to feel welcome. They provide a wide range of services to meet the needs of the fee-paying students on the Fort Collins campus by offering services such as individual and couple counseling, groups and workshops, specialized alcohol and drug treatment, intensive post mental health hospitalization services, behavioral health services, 24/7 emergency services and consultation with university colleagues, parents and friends.
