Online Mental Health Screening
The Counseling Center has partnered with Screening for Mental Health, Inc. (SMH) to allow Brookhaven students and employees to take a free, anonymous Online Mental Health Screening for symptoms of concern such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder and more. The screenings are meant to help you decide if consulting with a mental health professional would be beneficial to you. The results obtained are not formal diagnoses and not intended to replace professional discussions with a counselor.
We have made some of our SkillsShops available online for students to complete on their own, or by referral from an instructor. The associated quizzes are automatically scored online and a notice of completion is available immediately after scoring and is also emailed to both the Counseling Center and the student. Students can take this printout directly to their referring instructor to receive extra credit.
The Counseling Center has provided strategies below on various topics that can assist students with their academic success.
