Campus Safety Infrastructure: Local Mental Health Resources

Do you consider mental health resources a part of your campus safety infrastructure?  You should.   

A lack of mental health supports such as counseling services, psychiatric services, and local hospitals, as well as policies and practices means your institution has inadequate campus safety resources.  

Campus safety is more than security officers and fire drills, it includes health; Specifically, mental health.  

Does your campus have a counseling office? Yes? Good.  But is it adequate? 

What about local resources?  Are they adequate? What about waiting times?  

As a school, what policies and practices do you have to support whatever resources you have? How do your policies relate to mental health supports and safety of the individual and of the community?
