In order to help create a community that is psychologically safe for all students, the Student Counseling Center (SCC) takes an active role in the primary prevention of mental illness through outreach efforts to the Texas Tech community.
The SCC is involved in a number of large-scale outreach activities throughout the academic school year that are targeted to issues that are specifically relevant to the campus. In addition, the SCC also offers presentations to classrooms, student groups, and faculty and staff. These presentations can be tailored to the needs of unique groups on campus.
The SCC seeks to meet the following goals in our outreach efforts:
-Raise awareness about psychological issues
-Challenge ideas that contribute to social inequity, disempowerment, and discrimination
-Empower students to find and use their voices in a healthy and productive way
Guidelines for Classroom/Organization Presentations:
• All presentations are structured to be presented within a 50-minute timeframe unless otherwise stated.
• All presentations will be held in the Student Wellness Building unless otherwise arranged.
• We request that instructors be present for ALL presentations. Presentations will not be given without the instructor's presence.
• All presentations require a confirmed audience of 20 people.
• Presentations are only available during the first half of the semester unless presentations are part of a wide scale outreach event.
• 2 weeks notice required for all presentations.
