The Need for Counselling Services

New York Times, Jan 13, 2002 (registration required): The Therapy Generation. "...some 2,600 other students ... sought help at Columbia's counseling center last year and thousands more across the nation whose increasing use of psychotherapy is forcing campus mental health services to reevaluate their mission and expand. This fall, partly in response to highly publicized suicides and partly because of growing recognition of mental health needs, Columbia, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the University of Michigan began new research projects and programs aimed at improving their services. Concerns remain, however, over waiting times for appointments and frequent referrals off campus, especially at suburban and rural colleges with long commutes to medical centers and limited public transportation."
