Request for CHW Consultation and Outreach

The Ithaca College Center for Counseling, Health & Wellness (CHW) values collaborative relationships with members of our campus community. Our Outreach and Consultation Services aim to help members of the IC community address mental health, wellness and physical health concerns in a student-centered and holistic way. Please keep in mind that during busy times of the year, our first priority is the provision of direct services to students. This may affect our ability to provide outreach and consultation efforts, so we require that requests be made at least two weeks in advance. Use the Request for CHW Consultation and Outreach Form.
