In addition to on campus counselors, Saint Xavier University and the Counseling Center has partnered with Talkspace to offer undergraduate students unlimited text or video messaging, 30-minute synchronous counseling, and psychiatric services at no cost to the student.

In case of an off-campus emergency, call 911. In case of an on-campus emergency:

  • During office hours: Call 773-298-4045 or come by the Counseling Center located at 3911 W. 103rd St. in the Driehaus Center (between Gilhooley's and Copy Cats).
  • Non-office hours: Call Public Safety at 773-298-3911 and they will contact the on-call counselor.

Request for Services

The Counseling Center offers in-person, telehealth, and phone sessions for eligible students.

Also, we are now offering Talkspace!

To request services, complete a Request for Services Form electronically, or complete one in the Counseling Center, located at 3911 103rd Street in the Driehaus Center.

All current students are eligible to participate in counseling services at the Counseling Center, free of charge. If the counselor determines that the psychological or medical problems that a student is experiencing requires more intensive therapy or a specialized treatment approach that is not available through the Counseling Center, a referral will be discussed with the student and made to an agreed upon off-campus treatment facility. The Counseling Center does not provide legal services such as written reports or court testimony.

For Talkspace, all current undergraduate student are eligible to participate in online and video messaging, as well as, one 30-minute session per month and psychiatric services.

Filling Out a Request for Services Form

Once this form is submitted, the student will be contacted by one of our counselors within one business day to schedule a 30-minute initial assessment.

Following the initial assessment, the student will be assigned to a counselor who best fits their needs and that counselor will contact the client for the intake session. If the student is being referred to Talkspace, the Counseling Center staff will provide the instructions for setting up their account and walk them through the process, if needed.

The Counseling Center intake session is usually one hour, the student can share their thoughts and concerns, and together with the counselor, set goals for treatment. The student will be asked to complete a quick computer assessment to be used to measure improvement or to help clarify the problem. The counselor will evaluate all of the information and recommend the best approach or technique to address the student's issue. The rest of the sessions are typically 45-50 minutes. The Counseling Center uses a brief treatment model of 10-12 sessions, but the counselor will clinically assess whether the student needs fewer or additional sessions.

Confidentiality

Counselors maintain strict professional standards of confidentiality and privacy. The exceptions to confidentiality are when you indicate or a counselor believes you present an foreseeable danger to yourself or others, a child or vulnerable adult is being subjected to abuse or neglect or a court order requires disclosure of counseling files. Our files are separate from your academic and health records. In order to ensure the highest quality of care, we sometimes consult with clinical supervisors and fellow counselors. This consultation falls within the bounds of confidentiality and all efforts are made to ensure your privacy.

In terms of Talkspace, the online communication is convenient, confidential and secure. Saint Xavier University will never know who uses the service or for what purpose. Further explanation of confidentiality can be gathered from the site.

Frequently Asked Questions

The primary purpose of counseling services at SXU is to promote mental and emotional health to all enrolled students to enhance the quality of their college life. It is our belief that helping students achieve optimal levels of functioning will increase the likelihood of their academic success.

No! Just because you are seeking services does not mean you're "crazy." Many of our students seek counseling for personal growth and/or for help managing the challenges life presents all of us at one time or another. Seeking outside help from a trained, licensed professional is a way to work through a difficult time.

Counseling at Saint Xavier University is free to enrolled students. Alumni can receive an assessment and referral free of charge.

We follow standard confidentiality practices. This information is shared with students during the first appointment. In addition, all counseling records are kept separate from any other university records.

Yes, under normal circumstances, we request that you complete a Request for Services packet either in person or online. However, whenever possible, we will make accommodations for those individuals in a crisis or feel the need to talk to someone immediately.

Wellness, Balance, Growth

The World Health Organization (WHO) defines health as "a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity."

Wellness

Wellness has been defined as "the quality or state of being healthy in body and mind, especially as the result of deliberate effort" or "as an actively sought goal." Wellness can be divided into seven dimensions: emotional, social, intellectual, spiritual, physical, environmental, and occupational.

As a college student, here are some ways you can work on these dimensions in your own life:

  1. Emotional: Emotional wellness is the ability to understand ourselves and cope with the challenges life can bring. It's the ability to express emotions appropriately, adjust to change, cope with stress in a healthy way and enjoy life despite its occasional disappointments and frustrations. Cultivate an optimistic attitude, seek and provide support, practice stress management techniques.
  2. Social: Social wellness is the ability to relate to and connect with other people in our world. It endows us with the ease and confidence to be outgoing, friendly and affectionate toward others. Volunteer in the community, attend SXU athletic events, join a student organization, donate blood.
  3. Intellectual: Intellectual wellness is a state in which your mind in engaged in lively interaction with the world around you. It implies that you can apply the things you have learned and have the desire to learn new concepts, improve skills and seek challenges. Visit a museum, study abroad, read a book that's not required, attend a political event.
  4. Spiritual: Spiritual wellness is the ability to establish peace and harmony in our lives, to develop congruency between values and actions. It implies a search for meaning and purpose in life, and to work toward a state of harmony with oneself and others while balancing inner needs with the rest of the world. Learn about belief systems different from your own, take a religion or philosophy class to explore your values.
  5. Physical: Physical wellness is the ability to maintain a healthy quality of life that slows us to get through our daily activities without undue fatigue or physical stress. It's maintained by good nutrition, regular exercise, avoiding harmful habits and making informed and responsible decisions about health. Exercise five days/week, eat vegetables and fruit daily, get eight hours of sleep each night.
  6. Environmental: Environmental wellness is the ability to make a positive impact on the quality of our environment, the ability to recognize our own responsibility for the quality of the air, the water and the land that surrounds us. Reduce, reuse and recycle; bike/walk to class; use re-usable water bottles.
  7. Occupational: Occupational wellness is preparing and making use of your gifts, skills and talents in order to gain purpose, happiness and enrichment in your life. It means successfully integrating a commitment to your occupation into a total lifestyle that is satisfying and rewarding. Update your resume yearly, attend the job fair, talk with the Center for SUCCESS.

Balance and Growth

You can see that wellness may be a goal we never totally achieve. But it's a great goal to work toward. Some of these may be easier for you than others. Finding balance in each of these areas will be difficult as a college student, and you'll have experiences and opportunities for growth in all of them. The Counseling Center is here to help with problems and concerns in any of these areas, but we can also help with growth and improvement. Make use of all the resources SXU has for you, and may the upcoming year bring you wellness!


 

Referrals to the Counseling Center

For SXU Faculty and Staff

If you are concerned about a student, we suggest that you encourage him or her to come to the Counseling Center or fill out a Request for Services form online to discuss the situation with a counselor.

Here are some helpful ways to refer a student:

  • Suggest that the student come to the Counseling Center, Monday through Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
  • Call the main line (ext. 4045) while you are with the student in order to facilitate contact. The student can then speak to someone regarding services.
  • Walk the student over to the Counseling Center, located at 3911 103rd Street in the Driehaus Center. If this is an emergency, a counselor will speak to the student immediately.
Please remember that the communication between a counselor and client is confidential.

Without written consent from the student, we cannot and do not discuss the details of a student's situation or even the fact that the student is in counseling.

Alcohol and Other Drug Education Program (AODEP)

The mission of the Alcohol and Other Drug Education Program (AODEP) is to serve as a leader in the prevention and reduction of alcohol and other drug abuse, and accordingly, partner with stakeholders across the University to cultivate an environment that fosters the development of Saint Xavier University students.

Guided by Saint Xavier's rich Mercy tradition and utilizing the latest research and best practices in the field, the AODEP employs a comprehensive multi-tiered approach to substance abuse prevention that integrates education, environmental management, intervention and institutional assessment.

The AODEP supports and advances the mission and core values of Saint Xavier University by providing information to students, staff and faculty that promotes and respects healthy lifestyle choices and personal growth and development.

The AODEP is an institution-wide collaboration between Academic Affairs and Student Affairs at SXU. Its vision is to educate the SXU community about the impact of alcohol and other drug use as it relates to academic and personal success.

The AODEP:

  • Serves as a link for students to University support services
  • Provides information to students, staff and faculty that fosters healthy lifestyle choices
  • Designs and implements programs in collaboration with other University departments
  • Recommends changes to University policy regarding alcohol and other drugs
  • Measures the outcome effectiveness of prevention programs and activities
  • Creates an atmosphere in which alcohol and other drug use is not the central focus of social events

Wellness Education

Screening and Education Days

The Counseling Center sponsors two screening days every academic year for anxiety and for depression. Our goal is to provide wellness information to help students regarding stress and mood and to provide screening services to students who are concerned about their levels of anxiety and/or depression in their lives.

Our Screening and Education days combine a valid and reliable screening tool with interactive activities with games and prizes with an educational component. We'll also serve food!

Screening Day includes a completed screening form and a confidential one-on-one meeting with a counselor. The counselor will help the student decide if they wish to pursue further counseling.

Education Day includes information about symptoms, coping skills and treatments. The goal is for students to learn ways to manage their mental health before usual life difficulties become overwhelming and they need to seek counseling.

Stress Relief Weeks

The Counseling Center sponsors a week of stress reduction events before finals each semester -- Stress-Less Week! The events offer activities to help students be at their best as they finish up classwork and prepare for finals.

Watch for flyers for the dates of this semester's events!

  • Chill - The Counseling Center provides all the necessary components for ice cream sundaes; rain or shine, snow or heat!
  • Unleash Your Inner Child - A big collection of games and crafts are available for students to drop in and play for a break.
  • Re-Center - Our most popular event! A visit from several massage therapists offer 10-minute chair massages to help students de-stress. And while you're waiting, walk the labyrinth for a relaxing meditative experience.

And there is always an appearance of Lucky and Pals to finish off the week!

Test Anxiety Workshops

The Counseling Center is holding a series of workshops throughout the semester for students to learn new ways to manage their mental health before tests. Our goal is to provide students with information to identify and change self-defeating thoughts. We offer relaxation techniques to combat anxiety and improve focus and concentration.

How to make anxiety work for you Relaxation techniques How to identify and change self-defeating thoughts Mindfulness to help with focus and concentration

Signing Up for a Workshop

For more information or to sign up, contact Matthew Marjan at marjanFREESXU or 773-298-3824.

Therapy Dogs

Research has shown that therapy animals can reduce anxiety, depression and stress. The ability of animals to be present with openness and responsiveness can increase socialization and alleviate loneliness. We've seen this happen first-hand through our therapy dogs program.

A few times a semester, certified therapy dogs from Rainbow Animal Assisted Therapy visit us for a stress reduction event. Students can drop in anytime during the event and play with the dogs. Watch for the flyers for this semester's events!

Question, Persuade, and Refer

QPR stands for Question, Persuade and Refer: Three simple steps that anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide. Just as people trained in CPR and the Heimlich maneuver help save thousands of lives each year, people trained in QPR learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade, and refer someone to help.

"QPR is a Gatekeeper training program, based on the fact that adults, peers, family and friends are often in the best position to make an intervention because of their routine contact with the person at risk for suicide. The QPR strategy is designed for any group that may have contact with at-risk populations."

With QPR, the following Chain of Survival elements must also be in place:

  • Early recognition of suicide warning signs. The sooner warning signs are detected and help sought, the better the outcome of a suicide crisis will be.
  • Early QPR. Asking someone about the presence of suicidal thoughts and feelings opens up a conversation that may lead to a referral for help.
  • Early intervention and referral. Referral to local resources or calling 1-800-SUICIDE for evaluation and possible referral is critical, as most people thinking about suicide are suffering from an undiagnosed and/or untreated mental illness or substance abuse disorder for which excellent treatments exist. Also, the offering of hope and social and spiritual support can often avert a suicide attempt.
  • Early professional assessment and treatment. As with any illness, early detection and treatment can result in better outcomes and fewer lives lost to suicide.

Gatekeepers

(Staff, faculty, RA/RPM/RPAL)

According to the Surgeon General's National Strategy for Suicide Prevention (2001), a gatekeeper is someone in a position to recognize a crisis and the warning signs that someone may be contemplating suicide. Gatekeepers include parents, friends, neighbors, teachers, ministers, doctors, nurses, office supervisors, squad leaders, foremen, police officers, advisors, caseworkers, firefighters and many others who are strategically positioned to recognize and refer someone at risk of suicide.

A gatekeeper will learn to:

  • recognize the warning signs of suicide,
  • know how to offer hope, and
  • know how to get help and save a life.

Gatekeeper Instructors

(Counseling Center staff)

This certification course trains Instructors to teach QPR for Suicide Prevention to their community. Participants first learn about the nature of suicidal communications, what forms these communications take and how they may be used as the stimulus for a QPR intervention. To gain perspective, participants are introduced to the history of suicide, suicide prevention and the spectrum of modern day public health suicide prevention education efforts. The history, background and research support for QPR are reviewed. Participants then learn to market QPR, target potential gatekeepers and how to teach the QPR curriculum. Participants also learn to deal with pent up audience demand to talk about suicide, survivor issues and how to make immediate interventions and referrals. Each participant has the opportunity for individual rehearsal and practice through role-plays.
