Information for Faculty & Staff

Wellness Ambassadors

Supporting student wellness takes not just one department, but our entire community.  In each of their roles on campus, staff, faculty, and student leaders have opportunities to express care for students, connect them with support, and create a culture of resilience.  Please see our Wellness Ambassador page for more information on ways faculty and staff can become Wellness Ambassadors at Cal State East Bay.

Outreach

One of the best ways that Counseling Services can reach students is through our faculty & staff colleagues on campus. We regularly visit classes to let students know about counseling services, or to present on mental health topics.

We have created a menu of outreach presentation videos to facilitate getting this information out to you and your students.  Please see Counseling Presentation Videos for resources that you can show to your class or student group.

We can also design specific presentations depending on your needs. Please email shcscounseling@csueastbay.edu or call 510-885-3735 for more information, or to schedule.

Consultation

We also regularly consult with the campus community about mental health concerns for students. Please do not hesitate to contact us at 510-885-3735, or email shcscounseling@csueastbay.edu to consult. Although we cannot disclose confidential information, we can receive information and guide you through steps for supporting the student, and also connecting them with additional resources. After hours, you can also consult with our crisis support line by dialing 510-885-3735, Option 2.  You may also choose to submit a CARE report to alert our multidisciplinary campus team to your concern.

Staff and faculty may also be interested in participating in our Helping Students In Distress or Wellness Ambassador trainings to become better equipped to support and refer students.
