Student Counseling Services is an outpatient mental health service dedicated to treatment of enrolled Creighton undergraduate, graduate, and professional students. Generally, Counseling Services can treat the emotional difficulties and mental disorders that can safely be managed within the structure of an outpatient service. There are certain mental health disorders that cannot be effectively treated within the structure and resources of Creighton’s Counseling Services. Students that cannot be treated effectively or safely within this structure of resources will be referred to mental health resources within the community (in Omaha or in the student’s home community). Situations that require referral include (but are not limited to) the following: symptoms of disorganized or disruptive psychoses and high suicidal potential requiring inpatient hospital treatment; serious eating disorders; serious substance abuse/addiction treatment; chronic emotional crisis requiring intensive treatment, frequent appointments or special supervision or behavioral management.
