Our consultation services are aimed at promoting personal and community wellness and meeting the mental health needs of Vassar students. The staff at VCCS is available to all members of the Vassar community for consultation about issues that concern the lives of students, including, for example, helping a troubled student, making a referral to counseling, or managing conflict. In addition, VCCS staff can provide support in the event of a campus emergency or crisis.
Our staff members also liaise with various campus departments (e.g., Residential Life, ALANA Center, LGBTQI Center, SAVP, OIS) to provide education, support, and expertise in areas that affect the well-being of students. We welcome opportunities to collaborate with groups, committees, and organizations on campus.
