University Health and Counseling Services

Outreach and Programming

The staff at UHCS welcome opportunities to engage with the student population outside of the counselor/provider role, and in turn are often sought out by members of USM faculty, staff, and students for their expertise. Our staff members are active participants in such traditional college events as National Collegiate Alcohol Awareness Week, Welcome Weekend, and National Depression Screening Day. Other initiatives include guest-speaking engagements in the classroom, participation in panel discussions, and the development of awareness programming for the student population. The following is a list of topics that may be the focus of workshops, presentations, and other programs by the UHCS staff members:

  • Stress Management
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Relationship Violence
  • Healthy Relationships
  • Sexually Transmitted Diseases
  • CPR
  • Depression
  • Women and Depression
  • Sexual Assault Awareness
  • Nicotine Dependence and Treatment
  • Alcohol and the College Experience
  • Designer Drugs
  • Assertiveness
  • TIPS training (Training for Intervention Procedures)

Other areas may be covered as well, based upon the needs of the USM community. Programs, workshops, and other presentations can often be tailored to be more effective with a particular target audience or venue.
