What is a Consultation?

The Baylor University Counseling Center provides consultation services with those concerned about a student. We are open to speaking with parents, friends, staff, and faculty about a range of issues, including:

  • Strategies for helping a student connect with the Counseling Center or other on- campus support
  • Concerns about a particular student who might be experiencing emotional distress or struggling with mental health struggles
  • Concerns about the impact of an individual's distressing behaviors on others
  • Referrals to community mental health providers and services

Consultation is not the same as therapy. Please understand that all information about our clients is completely confidential (even the fact that they are clients). However, we may still be able to provide general information about how to understand, provide assistance, or get help for the person or situation you describe. Confidentiality does not limit what you can tell us.
