To help improve support of student mental health, Georgia Tech has begun implementing a satellite model of counseling. This means that a counselor will be placed within each department, and will provide a variety of services such as brief walk-in consultations to students, walk-in consultations for faculty and staff regarding a student, psychoeducational workshops and outreach, individual counseling, and group counseling. However, students who are wishing to formally access mental health services as clients will need to go through CARE (Center for Assessment, Referral, and Education).
