Outreach and Consultation

As an integral part of our work with students we develop relationships throughout the campus community.  We offer creative psycho-educational programming that emphasizes a multicultural and developmental perspective on prevention, well-being, and student self-help. We collaborate with staff and programs within the broader campus community, as well as with various departments and units to enhance the general campus climate. 

Part of our outreach efforts includes connecting with students through Twitter and YouTube. Follow and subscribe to stay in touch!

Embedded Services  

We have collaborated with the Department of Intercollegiate Athletics, the Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine, and the Division of Diversity & Inclusion to create embedded clinicians who work directly in those offices. The embedded clinician in each of these departments provides direct clinical services, as well as outreach programming and consultation services.

If your unit is interested in exploring the possibility of an embedded clinician, please contact our director, Paul Castelino at castelin@ohio.edu.   

Liaison Services

We are committed to enhancing the mental health and wellbeing of the Bobcat community, in part by providing quality outreach and consultation services. One component of our outreach and consultation programming is the CPS Liaison Program. CPS Liaisons facilitate close relationships between the counseling center and campus and community partners.  

CPS Liaisons:

  • Identify a contact person within their respective partner department, group, or organization if one is not already identified.  
  • Commit to a mutual ongoing exchange of information between CPS and their respective partner.  
  • Attend consultation meetings with their respective partner at least twice per academic year. 
  • Assess the needs of their respective partner and provide support and resources to meet those needs.  
  • Consider opportunities in which their partner may provide support or resources to CPS and/or the clients served.  
  • Ensure there are clear referral processes between CPS and their respective partner.  
  • Offer consultation services to their partner or any other student, staff, faculty, or stakeholder associated with their partner as it relates to mental health and wellbeing.  
  • Assist in organizing and offering Bobcats Who Care (suicide prevention) training to their respective partner department, group, or organization. 
  • Attend their partner’s events and programmatic initiatives, as appropriate.  
  • Communicate liaison partnership accomplishments and developments to the Assistant Director for Outreach and Consultation at CPS at the close of each semester and as needed. 
  • Attend CPS Liaison Program meetings twice per year (mid-December and mid-June), in which all CPS liaisons report on their liaison partnership and explore opportunities for collaboration.  

Please note, CPS Liaisons are not the sole therapist serving students affiliated with the partner department, group, or organization. When referred to CPS, students across the university may work with any CPS therapist. Clinicians embedded within a department are an exception to this rule, as they are the primary clinicians providing direct clinical services to students within their respective departments.  

A list of liaison partnerships is available upon request.  If you would like to create a liaison partnership with CPS, contact the Assistant Director for Outreach and Consultation Stephanie Maccombs-Hunter at maccombss@ohio.edu
