- Recognizing & Responding
Some students come to our office with questions about mental health diagnoses or symptoms and are interested in learning more. Our clinical staff will help you understand possible mental health diagnoses, symptoms and treatment options. However, having a mental health diagnosis is not required to be eligible for services.
Counseling and Psychological Services staff can also determine an appropriate referral to an outside provider in the community if your needs require specialized or longer term treatment. Referrals can also be made for psychological assessment. Counseling and Psychological Services does not provide psychological assessment or standardized testing to determine disability or eligibility for disability services.
Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) Assessments
Students may be required by the Office of Student Conduct and Conflict Resolution or Athletics, to complete an AOD Assessment as a result of a campus alcohol and other drug policy violation. AOD Assessments give students the opportunity to openly discuss their alcohol and/or drug use, in a private and confidential space, without concern for further disciplinary action. These assessments are done in a single visit for educational purposes and focus on the details surrounding the policy violation(s), substance use history, and goals for attending RIT. Further recommendations may be provided, but it is up to the student to complete them. The only information shared back to the referring office is if the assessment was attended. Specific details are protected mental health information. Please contact our main office (585-475-2261) with any additional questions.
