General Counseling/Consultation Services
We provide an alternative for women and LGBTQ+ students who may not necessarily define the issues they are dealing with as mental health issues or may not choose to seek services from a traditional mental health facility.
Many women and LGBTQ+ students seek our services because they trust that the S.A.G.E. Center will better understand their experience in the world in the context of sexism, racism, homophobia and other social justice issues. Below is a list of some, but certainly not all, of the issues students come to the center wanting to discuss.
- Gender Inequity
- Sexual or gender identity related issues
- Verbal, mental, emotional and/or physical violence
- Relationship issues (with significant others, parents, siblings, friends)
- The “Coming Out” process
- Hate Violence (racism, sexism, homophobia, classism, ageism and ableism)
Victim Based Services:
In conjunction with Voices Against Violence advocates, we provide comprehensive support services to all students who are are survivors of sexual assault, intimate partner violence (dating violence), stalking, childhood sexual abuse and sexual harassment.
The S.A.G.E. Center will ensure that you are connected to any and all services including but not limited to legal, medical and academic advocacy, short term crisis counseling, support groups and a range of other services specific to our campus. All services are free and confidential.
