Student Care Network offers drop-in and satellite services for spring semester

Services by the Student Care Network and several other offices are offered in satellite locations across campus and virtually. This is to provide the Vanderbilt community with quick, convenient access to resources to consult on a concern, explore support options and connect with staff members. In most instances, satellite services are not a replacement for routine care or appointments, but they may be an entry point to become more comfortable or learn about a resource that you find useful. 

The Satellite Services calendar includes location information and other details. Drop-in and satellite service information for Student Care Coordination, the University Counseling Center and the Center for Student Wellbeing are highlighted below.  

Student Care Coordination

Drop-in care coordination meetings are offered so students can meet quickly with a care coordinator to discuss immediate needs, including but not limited to: 

  • Planning for a successful semester 
  • Identifying and connecting with resources for support on or off campus 
  • Discussing academic options, taking a medical leave of absence and/or assistance with communicating with faculty/dean’s office 
  • Connecting with the University Counseling Center 

SCC drop-ins are available Monday–Friday and will end on Monday, April 24. Please click here for the full schedule, including time and location of drop-ins.  

Drop-in care coordination meetings are not therapy or counseling. If you have a concern that may be best addressed by a therapist, please use the drop-in consultation sessions and/or urgent care services offered by the University Counseling Center. 

University Counseling Center

UCC drop-in consultations are an outreach program that provides easy access to informal, confidential and free consultations with clinicians from the University Counseling Center. Counselors can provide solutions and referrals to other on-campus and off-campus resources and are a good fit for students who: 

  • are not sure about counseling and wonder what it’s like to talk with a counselor 
  • are not interested in ongoing counseling but would like the perspective of a counselor 
  • have a specific problem and would like to talk it through with a counselor 
  • have a concern about a friend and want some thoughts about what to do 

For the spring 2023 semester, the UCC’s drop-in consultation program will also amplify its response to the needs of students affected by events and natural disasters happening locally and across the globe. 

Drop-in consultations are available Monday–Friday and will end on May 12. Please click here for the full schedule, which includes virtual and in-person visits.  

UCC drop-in consultations are not meant for urgent mental health concerns. Students who are experiencing a mental health crisis are encouraged to connect with UCC Urgent Care for support by calling 615-322-2571. 

Center for Student Wellbeing

Meet with a CSW coach to discuss concerns affecting your well-being or academic success, such as stress and time management, organization skills or coping strategies.  

In addition to the drop-in sessions, the CSW also offers weekly well-being practices, which include mindfulness sessions of meditation and yoga.  

Drop-in coaching is available Monday–Friday and will end on Monday, April 24. Please click here for the full schedule, which includes timing for both drop-in sessions and weekly well-being.
