For Faculty and Staff

The Counseling and Human Relations Center offers a wide range of educational and support programs designed to foster students’ development as healthy, thoughtful, responsible, respectful and productive members of the community.  In particular, the Counseling and Human Relations Center provides assistance to students who may be experiencing emotional difficulties which interfere with their learning.

How Do I Know If A Student Is In Trouble?

As a member of the PSU faculty or staff, you may find yourself in a position to observe and recognize changes in students which signal psychological distress. Faculty and staff members observe individual students’ behaviors, interactions with others, and progress or lack of progress in school.  You are often the first, or only person, to notice when a student begins to display signs of a problem.  This is not to imply that you are to be a “watch dog,” but that students often seek out faculty and staff to share their distress.  Recognizing these distress signals and having some guidelines for dealing with distressed students can assist you in making appropriate referrals and recommendations.
