Interesting opinion-ish article from the Chronicle of Higher Ed. It argues that the refusal/referring out of students with more severe/chronic mental health problems (e.g., BPD, chronic suicidality, bipolar, schizophrenia,PTSD, etc) is ill-advised because most students who are refered out don't end up getting treatment in the community because of cost, time, lack of insurance, etc. It also suggests that the brief therapy model employed by most university counseling centers is at the root of some of these problems. http://chronicle.com/article/Giving-Troubled-Students-the/130838/ What do you think? I haven't worked in college counseling center, so I don' t really feel qualified to have a strong opinion one way or another.
