Counseling Client Comments Continued
How important do you think it is to continue to offer counseling services on campus?
The clinic is a very important part of the university.
Extremely important. I hope it expands.
Extremely important. These are stressful times.
I think that it is a critical service here on campus!
It is very, very important that counseling services continue at CWU because People, like me, depend on it to help me succeed academically and personally. Absolutely crucial, this is the fist place I’ve received mental health help, and i know the clinic is vital to the health of a lot of students, including myself Extremely important, just having the option for students to enroll in on campus counseling is huge. I equate it to a survival situation, the ability to make and sustain a fire can drastically improve the odds of survival. Counseling does just that for students. It would be a terrible idea to cut off mental care at a col- lege. Very important to help students because college is the start of a big change for most and i know for me personally it helped me stay enrolled and come back to on campus clas- ses Vitally. I think the counseling center should be expanded, it’s of great need. I believe the continual offering of services is essential to the health of CWU students. More important than words can explain
Don’t ever stop it
It is vital. Many friends of mine have struggled with their mental health and many of us don’t have the money to see people off campus. This is our only resource Extremely. I have never sought counseling prior to my college career, largely because it was outside of my financial means, so having readily available services is very very help- ful. Counseling is extremely important. Many individuals are scared to seek care and when it is on campus it is close and accessible to these students, myself included. I feel that is important to the well being of the students for support and encouragement Incredibly important, I wouldn’t have made it past my first year and I’m a senior now It is very important for retention within the university I think that counseling is an extremely important support system for the people who need it, without counseling on campus a lot of the people who need it would not have access to help. Super important Extremely. I might not be alive had I not been able to do counseling.
Groups are not the best for everyone.
There should be screening for undiagnosed ADHD
I know that sometimes it can be difficult to begin one on one counseling- some students are made to do the group counseling instead and I don’t think that is as helpful as individual counseling. Confidentiality in the clinic check in process and respect for different cultures could be served by a different waiting area, also not having the med clinic clients walk through the counseling waiting area, and have a way for clients to check in without saying their name or reason for visit Other comments: It helps me confront my needs and getting the help I need for my personal issues. It pulls off the problems and weight off. I feel I am being heard and no one is judging me for how I feel I have heard mixed reviews from friends. Some think the counseling isn’t very helpful, but others like some of the services they offer. For the cultural/identity questions, I did not find them applicable because I did not bring them up in counseling. It being free is super vital to me being able to be here. Students mental health declines as classes and social experiences become more difficult. I wasn’t sure about it at first but it seems to help me a lot The clinic is very friendly. This clinic is fantastic My counselor has maintained an excellent level of professionalism, while remaining empathetic and welcoming of my personality I felt respected and welcomed when I entered in the clinic. My information stayed between me and my counselor, and I feel that I’m heard when I attend the sessions
