Outreach and Engagement Request

KSU Counseling and Psychological Services is committed to supporting the educational mission of the university and providing mentorship to students interested in the helping professions. Our CPS staff and Peer Counselors are available to offer the following presentations for academic courses, student organizations, and staff meetings.  Course instructors must be present during all requested CPS class presentations. 

Outreach requests must be received at least 3 weeks in advance of the request date.  Request made less than 3 weeks in advance are not guaranteed to be filled.  A member of our CPS Outreach Team will contact you to discuss your request further.  Due to the high volume of requests, please understand that we may not be able to accommodate multiple requests from a single department or organization.



Types of Outreach we Provide:

Interview/Course Assignments – A student may submit a request to meet with a counselor to conduct an interview to complete a course assignment.

Instructor Classroom Presentation Request – A staff or faculty member may submit a request to have a member of our team provide a presentation for a lecture or course period. Course instructors MUST be present for all classroom presentations.

Standard Presentation – Any faculty, staff, or student can request any of our current workshops listed below:

  • Mental Health 101 (30-45 minutes) - This presentation is focused on identifying the components of mental health, how we utilize them, how they impact our everyday lives, and a few good mental health practices that can be implemented.
  • Asking for a Friend (30-45 minutes) - This presentation is designed to help individuals understand and talk about mental health with others. Topics addressed include warning signs, how to approach talking about mental health, ways to be supportive of a friend or loved one experiencing mental health challenges, and resources for seeking out help.
  • CPS Services (30 - 45 minutes) - This presentation is your one stop shop for all things Counseling and Psychological Services at KSU! Topics include a comprehensive list of our services, description of confidentiality, how to make an appointment, and much more!

Customized Outreach Requests - Any faculty, staff, or student can request a collaboration with a CPS staff member. Such requests must be received at least 4 weeks in advance of the presentation date, as they may require planning time between the requestor and the presenter to assure the achievement of desired learning outcomes.
