student treatment abroad

student treatment abroad Pre-departure The Counseling Center reports that more students are coming to college with mental health conditions. This does not necessarily mean that more students have mental illness, but rather that students are getting diagnosed and treated as adolescents. For the majority of students, this means they are comfortable with, and in control of, their condition. And, in fact, most students with mental health conditions study abroad successfully. OSA encourages students to disclose all pre-existing health conditions via the online Student Health/Emergency Treatment Authorization Form. If a student requires on-going care while abroad, such as counseling, you will be informed by OSA and the Travel Clinic that a medical management plan is being developed. On-site If you have a student whose behavior leads you to believe he may have a mental health condition, resist the urge to diagnose. Instead, focus on disruptive or harmful behaviors, and their impact on the learning environment. Start by talking to the student in private. Be sure to listen carefully and show concern/interest. Repeat back the essence of what the student has told you. Avoid criticizing or sounding judgmental. Suggest visiting a counseling center and discuss this with the student. If the student resists help and you are still worried, contact OSA to discuss your concerns. OSA can put you in touch with a variety of mental health resources, including the MSU Counseling Center. The Counseling Center is staffed from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm and from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm and can be reached at (517) 355-8270. Their 24/7 line is (517) 372-6666. They can provide advice over the phone to program leaders for dealing with situations. They can also provide therapy to students; however, arranging for in-person services through HTH Worldwide is preferred. If you consider the situation to be an emergency, call the local emergency facilities (comparable to 911) and stay with the student. If the student seeks out-patient treatment abroad, inquire as to whether he/she kept his/her appointment and how he/she felt about the session.
