如何更好地利用帽

知道你在寻找什么

The first thing you need to do is figure out what kind of therapy or counseling you’re looking for. What are your needs, what do you need help navigating, what kind of a therapist are you looking for? These are all important questions that you need to ask yourself before you start your counseling. 最常见的是心理咨询. This deals with everything from relationships, 躯体变形, 饮食失调, 自尊, 抑郁和/或焦虑, 等.  For more advice, check out this video from the 帽 on the 开始咨询的途径.

如何开始

如果你或你认识的人需要帮助, call the 帽 Office (435-865-8621) to schedule an appointment. Once you have been informed of the services available to you, you will be directed on how to access several important forms regarding what you are dealing with, 一个同意书, 以及其他类似的信息. 签了这个,你就可以上路了! Asking for help is hard, and you just took the first step, good job!

第一次预约时被联系

在预约之后很快, you will be contacted by the front desk of the office by phone or email, giving you your assigned counselor and other important information. 然而, it might be a little wait because there tends to be a slew of people who reach out at the very beginning of the semester. 不过,不用担心! Until you are contacted, feel free to check out the 精神卫生工具包, COVID生存指南, or 有关其他帮助组的信息.

你的第一个约会

Your counselor will spend this first meeting going over what you need, 回顾你的个人历史, and explaining how the counseling services work. Congratulations, you just had your first appointment! Here's a deeper look at what you should do while in counseling.

Of course, there are some logistics that you have to keep in mind.

First, you have to show up for your appointment. 帽 offices are currently in transition so appointments are taking place via Zoom. 在你预约的时候, your counselor will send you a link and go into more detail about the process. 帽 services, while free to students, are supported largely by student fees. If you have to cancel or reschedule an appointment, please give your counselor 24 hours notice. 如果你给的时间少于24小时, 或者干脆不出现, a fine will be charged to your account and your account will be held until the fee is paid.

其次,突发事件. Remember, the 帽 Office DOES NOT have 24-hour operation for phone calls and/or emails. If you or someone you know needs immediate care after hours, 请拨打911, 联系素校园警察(435-586-1911), 或者马上去最近的医院. 如果你没有紧急情况的话, but you worry you or someone you know might be in danger, 通过联系专业人士 SafeUT应用 or contact 833-372-3388 to talk confidentially about your problem. Reaching out to the right sources can save someone’s life, so if you or someone you know is showing warning signs of self-harm or suicide, contact the 帽 office or the SafeUT hotline today.

Third, wrapping up your counseling and being discharged. 什么时候结束治疗合适? 回顾一下你的经历. 你已经成长到你想要的程度了吗? Have you solved the problem that you started therapy for? Maybe this therapist isn’t working for you anymore? These reasons, and more, are completely valid reasons to stop counseling. 当你到达这一点, you will likely have a “Termination Session” with your therapist to help you plan out how you want to finish up, as well as looking back at where you started compared to where you are now. Whether or not you have this session is totally up to you, but it can be very helpful. It can also be an opportunity to have an honest “goodbye” or “see you later” moment with your counselor. Watch this video for more about Discharge and Termination Sessions.
