STUDENT ONLINE SUPPORT
SWITCH: Extending a Helping Hand Online
Dear students, maybe you’re thinking if you can possibly reach out to your college counselors and have an opportunity to talk with him or her even if you’re at home.
The Guidance and Counseling Unit provides you a technology-assisted program especially during this time of quarantine due to the CoVid-19 Pandemic threat. The program is inspired and adapted from the American Psychological Association's (APA) guidelines for telepsychology. Through internet sources and telephone calls, you can get professional assistance to overcome your fears and anxieties and keep your mental health and well-being in tuned even in the midst of crisis.
Quaranthings: How to Face the New Normal
In such unprecedented and uncertain times, it is normal to experience higher levels of stress and anxiety. College students face an onslaught of stressors related to the disruptions in their lives caused by either a pandemic or other crisis and they are relying on each other for connection and coping strategies to help ease the weight of the public health crisis on their mental wellness. The institution and its personnel are doing what they can to quickly shift counseling services for students from in-person to counseling via telephone or video sessions. The technology is seemingly an effective replacement for the human connection that many students seek and need, and a significant tool to cope or decrease emotional, mental, and health related concerns.
The Guidance and Counseling Unit initiated a series of psychoeducational webinar for the TSU students. These seminars will help the students to cope-up with their mental health issues and lighten their emotional pains, anxiety, stress, hopelessness, and even fear brought by this COVID-19.
