Analysis of progress toward accessibility goals Counseling Services is continuing to provide more access, more quickly, to more students in the first 6 weeks of Fall 2018 as compared to Fall 2017. This is true for both initial consultations (49% decrease in wait time), crisis appointments (45% increase in clients seen same day for urgent crisis), and on-going individual appointments (97% reduction in the number of students triaged for individual therapy). Only 5% of service-seeking students have been referred directly to community providers or a higher level of care. Another 4.6% were taken into Counseling Services for short-term therapy with the goal of an eventual referral to the community for long-term care. Staff have been intentionally making use of services other than on-going weekly individual therapy appointments to meet student needs. Staff have also significantly increased their presence in the university community, demonstrating a 73% increase in outreach services over the same period during Fall 2017. Retention Ninety-eight percent of the students who have had at least one appointment with Counseling Services this Fall are still enrolled at Central as of the 6-week mark. Telepsychiatry KVH is very interested in exploring a partnership with Insight and SMaCC for joint psychiatric services. The financial side for KVH is a difficulty, as reimbursement rates are lower than what Insight charges. KVH is looking for financial alternatives that would allow us to move forward. Work on the collaboration is still active.
