Distance counseling, also known as Telemental Health, is available by some counselors. This type of counseling allows students to meet with a counselor either by phone or secure online video conferencing. This service was designed for students who may predominantly take online classes or who cannot meet a counselor on either campus location. Distance counseling may be an option for students during unexpected weekday campus closure.
While we make an effort to ensure confidentiality, distance counseling may compromise this in some cases. The nature and use of the internet and phone prevent total guarantee of privacy as we may experience from an office visit. We do use a software program that is HIPAA compliant to offer as much confidentiality as possible.
For students who wish to engage in distance counseling, each will read and sign an Informed Consent for Telemental Health, which will include a student’s contact information and an emergency contact. While some students may find the concept somewhat strange at first, most have positive experiences. To make an appointment, or learn more about the process, contact a counselor directly or contact Counseling@ChattahoocheeTech.edu.
