Prevention & Outreach Services

The Counseling Center staff and the Mental Health Ambassadors are available to present educational and interactive programs and workshops on a variety of mental health topics. Our interactive programs are designed to raise awareness in regard to mental health as well as educate audiences about coping skills and other wellness behaviors. We welcome requests to present to classes, clubs, teams, residence halls and other student organizations.

To request an outreach program, please call the Counseling Center at (828) 262-3180 and ask for Emily Lazar, the Prevention and Outreach Coordinator. Be prepared with your topic choice, group type and size, and the date, time and location of your event or you can fill out and submit our online program request form. We suggest that requests be made at least two weeks prior to your scheduled event. Given sufficient time and staff availability we will be happy to meet your request.
