Off-campus Referrals

Students with issues that may require long-term individual therapy or specialized treatment may be referred to mental health professionals in the community. If you are referred off-campus for psychological services, you will be responsible for any fees that you may incur. Your health insurance may cover these services. Take a look at some local Off Campus Counseling Resources. The website, Psychology Today, lists information about clinicians in your area and with a variety of specialties. In addition, The United Way of the Piedmont provides a Behavioral Health Resource Guide, which is a directory of mental and behavioral health resources, along with crisis numbers, for Spartanburg, Cherokee, and Union Counities.  You may contact Counseling Services if you need assistance with seeking services off-campus.
