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:

  • Depression
  • Stress Management
  • Eating/Body Image Concerns
  • Anxiety
  • Substance Use/Abuse
  • Time Management; and
  • Relationship Concerns.

If these problems are not addressed, they may result in emotional, academic or social difficulties for the student.

The CWC at New College of Florida can often help students resolve their concerns so they can feel better and get “back on track” with their academic work.

Services Offered at the CWC

The CWC is a confidential service available to all currently registered NCF and USFSM students. We provide a variety of services to help students achieve their academic and personal goals while they are at NCF or USFSM, including individual and group therapy, psychiatric consultation and medication management, and outreach programming. The CWC 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.
