When Should I Refer a Student to SCC?
As an advisor, mentor, professor, resident assistant, or staff person students may seek you out as a source of support.

Personal hints to help you decide when it's time to refer:

  • The student's struggles leave you feeling helpless.
  • Your best efforts are not adequate support for the student.
  • You may feel unable or uncomfortable with providing extensive support.
  • You feel like you have reached your limit or have exhausted your ideas on how to help.
  • You have doubts as to what may help the student.
  • You feel increasingly anxious and pre-occupied about the student's struggle.
  • You feel angry or intimidated by the student's comments or behavior.
  • You are spending large amounts of time on the student's issues.
  • The student's issues are too close to home for you, making it hard to get and keep perspective.
Some additional tips on referring:
  • Share with the student your interest in them and in their well-being.
  • The choice to seek our help is usually up to the student.
  • Discuss with the student what they might expect when they meet with a therapist at SCC.
  • Give the student the option to call SCC from your office.
  • Ask the student if he or she would like you to make the call to SCC while they are with you or if you can accompany them to the SCC office; if you are willing.
  • If you can, provide the student a name of someone specific at SCC to talk with.
  • Referring to SCC can help the student begin to help him or herself.
