Outreach & Prevention Services

The University Counseling Center’s (UCC) Outreach Services focus on increasing student mental health awareness and emotional well-being through prevention, awareness, education and stigma reduction.   By getting outside of the Counseling Center and meeting with students in formats or settings that are part the college experience, we connect with students who traditionally would not be likely to seek counseling services. These might include students who don’t know about the Counseling Center, are uncomfortable with the idea of using services due to mental health stigma, need support but not counseling or just need information about helping a distressed friend.   We also partner with other campus departments and groups to contribute to events and programs which foster wellness, diversity and inclusion.

Suicide Prevention  

Suicide prevention is an important initiative on college campuses across the country. It is important to know what to do if you, a friend, a family member, or a classmate is having a crisis or thoughts of suicide. This short video covers the warning signs that someone is in distress, and what you can do to help.  

The University Counseling Center offers several FREE training's geared at helping TAMU-CC students, faculty, and staff recognize depression and prevent suicide on our campus.  

We offer two training options: 

Call to ACTion (For Students) 

A 50 minute mental health wellness and suicide prevention program which challenges mental health stigma and encourages help seeking. The program teaches students how to recognize signs of anxiety, depression and suicidality in a distressed peer, how to intervene in a caring way, and how to make a referral for treatment. 

QPR (For Students, Staff, and Faculty) 

A 90 minute training during which participants learn to recognize the warning signs of suicide and how to intervene and help someone who is depressed or suicidal by using the three steps of QPR (question, persuade, refer).
