Off-Campus Referrals

The UCC has relationships with mental health treatment providers in the local community who provide high quality services to Notre Dame students. We refer students to these community providers when a student needs or requests services that are beyond the scope of those the UCC can reasonably provide. Examples of this include circumstances in which longer-term, more intensive, or more specialized treatment are indicated. During the intake appointment and initial evaluation period, the intake counselor, often in consultation with other UCC staff, will help the student determine whether an off-campus referral is indicated, and those treatment providers most appropriate for the student’s needs. In addition, off-campus referrals are usually made when a student has received regular services at UCC for a longer period of time, and his or her use of services begins to exceed the UCC’s brief treatment framework. Students with the University-sponsored Student Insurance are required to complete an intake at the UCC at the beginning of each academic year to obtain a referral to any off-campus mental health provider.
