In addition to counseling services, we are committed to promoting a healthy climate at Montclair State University by extending services beyond Russ Hall. Through prevention and education, we aim to reach a wide range of students, including those who are interested in learning more about our services, those who may want to know more about how to help a friend and those who do not feel comfortable seeking therapy. We also provide support and consultation to staff and faculty who are concerned about a student.
Providing psycho-education and prevention programming to students, faculty and staff across campus is referred to as “outreach.” Outreach is a broad term which includes facilitating workshops related to enhancing students’ personal growth, mental/physical health, academic success and overall well-being; forming collaborative relationships with other departments focused on assisting students; providing community programs across campus around a variety of themes; providing support to students in the campus community; and being present at campus-wide events.

Drop-in groups are open to any MSU student. No appointment is needed, and weekly attendance is recommended but not required. Drop-in groups combine support and learning about particular issues, challenges or aspects of identity. These groups may be discussion based, solution-focused, or some combination of both.
