Counseling and Treatment Useful Links


Students or employees who abuse controlled substances or alcohol are encouraged to seek assistance and referral through our Counseling Center. Individual counseling is provided by the staff of the Counseling Center for short-term crisis intervention.   Planning for continued treatment considers the situational context and individual needs and may include referral to off-campus agencies.


The Faculty RoomThe Faculty Room is a space for faculty and administrators at postsecondary institutions to learn about how to create classroom environments and academic activities that maximize the learning of all students, including those with disabilities.

Adaptech Research Network - Web Site provides videos, and overviews of low cost software and hardware to assist individuals with disabilities 

The JED Foundation--for at-risk students 
The Pennsylvania Department of Health Southwest Regional staff and 
their community partners recognized a gap in health services for youth with special health care needs. When these youth leave school, they transition from having different or no insurance coverage, from seeing pediatric specialists to searching for adult medical specialists, and from good coverage for medications to having to understand new systems for obtaining medicines. Working with the State Transition Team, agencies, and families, the Transition Health Care Checklist (PDF);  TextSpanish was created to guide youth, families, and professionals during this time of change.
