Description of the Center
USC Counseling and Mental Health Services provide mental health services
to students so that they may achieve their academic and personal goals. Services we provide include: individual and group counseling;
assessment and referral to other professionals and institutions; crisis intervention (including some after-hours coverage); case management;
biofeedback; psychiatric evaluations and medication follow-up; consultation; outreach and prevention; and training and supervision.
We are committed to providing quality mental and educational services in accordance with the ethical and legal standards of our
profession. We appreciate and honor diversity and work with all students with compassion, respect and dignity. We advocate for and empower
our students in pursuing their goals and personal development.
Training is an important function in our center. We are committed
to providing professional training opportunities for trainees in psychology, social work, and medicine (i.e. medical students). The entire
faculty is involved in our training programs including individual supervision, group supervision, case consults, and/or seminars. The
training also includes participating in and promoting self-reflection. Our students benefit from multidisciplinary collaboration and we
adopt a bio-psycho-social approach in our work whenever appropriate.
We are committed to making the Center a work environment
characterized by respect, mutual support, and team work, and the sharing of diverse opinions among our faculty. We value and honor the
diversity of the students we serve as well as the diversity of our faculty and the unique contributions of each member. Faculty are
committed to ongoing learning, self-awareness, and cultural competency.
