Balance Crisis/Consultation Services with Ongoing Treatment Services and Demands to Protect Your Institution
With the increased focus on mental health services and the ever-increasing demand for mental health services on campuses, counseling centers are feeling pressure to increase access to these services for students. The COVID-19 pandemic has also pushed most counseling centers to begin using telehealth, which has provided an additional way for students to access services.
A well-defined “scope of care” is critical for institutions to ensure they can meet demand, take care of their staff and protect themselves from potential lawsuits.
Our expert presenter focuses on various factors counseling centers need to consider in evaluating and adjusting their scope of services as they attempt to meet the sometimes-competing demands of their students and their stakeholders.
You’ll be able to effectively communicate an agreed-upon scope of care to help shift the expectations of your campus community, as well as to prepare for implications for services and staffing.
