Information for Faculty

At Counseling and Psychological Services we are firmly committed to creating positive alliances and collaborations with faculty, staff, and administrators at Fordham University. CPS staff regularly provide educational outreach on a number of common mental health issues to various departments on campus, and we welcome additional requests or ideas about such services.

CPS staff is available to assist you with individual consultations as well. As faculty, staff, and administrators, you may interact with students on a day-to-day basis in a way that CPS staff do not. As a result, you may be in a position in which you observe concerning changes in a student before we have even met that student. Should you have any questions or concerns about a student with whom you've been interacting, please do not hesitate to contact us. CPS staff are available for consultation by phone during regular work hours and are happy to advise and support you as you think through how to support your students.

Should you have any pressing concerns about a student, please contact us as soon as possible. If you are very concerned about a student (i.e., you are worried that student is a risk to him/herself or others), please mention this concern during your initial phone call with us. Additionally, please see our "Concerns About Suicide" link on the left hand side of this page for some valuable information tailored to faculty, staff, and administrators at Fordham.

Please take a moment to look at the brochure below. It offers useful information about working with the emotionally distressed student. The brochure discusses:

· Faculty and Staff Roles
· Cross Cultural Communication
· The Verbally Aggressive Student
· The Violent Student
· Substance Abuse
· The Distressed and Anxious Student
· The Suicidal Student.
