Comprehensive Referral Assistance

When off-campus therapy is recommended or preferred by students, a counselor will support the student through the process of getting connected.  We will help to identify several referral options selected specifically for their personal situation. We can help with accessing health insurance benefits and navigating transportation options. Local counseling options include some providers within walking distance to campus and some that provide low or sliding scale fee services. It is our goal to insure that students are connected with the treatment that will best fit their particular needs, and we will continue meeting with you during this transition.

Connecting with a health or mental health professional in the community, whether in Baltimore or back home during semester breaks, is a new process for many students. Our counselors will offer support, assistance, and referrals to empower students to connect with the best treatment option for them. Below are some additional resources that are useful in making this connection.
