Giving Tuesday: Counseling and Prevention Services Offer Mental Health Resources for Students

NC State students write positive messages on a chalk board.

As NC State has strengthened its focus and commitment to supporting students’ mental health and well-being, the Counseling Center and Prevention Services have both stood out as vital services for NC State students. 

For this year’s Giving Tuesday, Annual Giving seeks to support this critical student resource by promoting Counseling and Prevention Services. 

Gifts to the Counseling Center help provide a more welcoming environment, improve direct outreach services and enhance critical training for staff and students. 

The Counseling Center helps students address a wide variety of challenges, such as depression, anxiety, family issues, substance abuse and more. Services include individual counseling, group counseling, psychiatry appointments and outreach programs. 

Prevention Services offers relaxed, informal drop–in spaces for students to connect over shared experiences.

The Counseling Center and Prevention Services also collaborate with student Mental Health Ambassadors to foster peer-to-peer education efforts. NC State also partnered with The Jed Foundation to assess efforts and strengthen student well-being and mental health.

Mary Chamblee (‘17), an NC State alum who manages all digital and print content for the Counseling Center and Prevention Services, is proud to support the Counseling and Prevention Services Enhancement Fund and help more students learn about the services available. 

“The beauty of it, in time or money, is it doesn’t have to be resource-draining for you to give,” she said.
