Free, confidential, short-term and crisis intervention individual counseling services are offered to all NHTI students. Referrals can be made to local mental health professionals. The cost incurred for referral to a local mental health professional is the responsibility of the student. All NHTI faculty and staff are encouraged to contact the Counseling Office with concerns about students.
Generally, services are by appointment. Because appointments are reserved for you, cancellations should be made as early as possible so that the vacated time may be made available to another person. To make an appointment call (603) 230-4043.
Some issues that students have sought help with include:
In the event of a mental health emergency call 911 or the nearest hospital emergency department. If you are not an NHTI student, faculty or staff member, administrator, parent or alumni, please contact the counseling center where you are a student or your local mental health center for additional help or information.
Confidentiality is maintained in keeping with ethical and legal standards. Your visits and conversations do not become part of any other NHTI record. There are, however, legally mandated exceptions to confidentiality. These include:
- notification of relevant others when a counselor judges that a client is in immediate danger to self or others, as for example, in the case of suicide or homicide;
- any incidence of suspected child, elder or incapacitated adult abuse, neglect, or maltreatment in order to protect the children, elderly, or incapacitated person(s) involved; and
- in legal cases, clinicians or clinical records may be subpoenaed by the court.
Written authorization will be obtained from you before disclosure of confidential information. Information regarding students is shared with the Vice President of Student Affairs as needed for case consultation. Students are encouraged to discuss any concerns they have about confidentiality with the counselor.
