When to Refer
The college years can be a time of both excitement and stress for students. Sometimes new challenges, stresses, and freedoms can lead to difficulties.
Common problems that students sometimes experience while in college include:
If these problems are not addressed, they may result in emotional, academic, or social difficulties for the student.
The New College of Florida Counseling & Wellness Center can often help students resolve their concerns so they can feel better and get "back on track" with their academic work.
How do you know when a student needs help?
The Counseling & Wellness Center staff may also facilitate referrals to other on-campus or off-campus service providers when appropriate. Referrals are made when the student's concerns are better addressed elsewhere, or when the student's concerns are beyond the scope of the services we provide.
