Counseling services are available to all enrolled Davidson College students. Counselors go to great lengths to promote students' well-being by providing an individualized care plan, in a safe, inclusive and confidential environment.
Individualized Care Model
Davidson College’s mental health counselors utilize an Individualized Care Model, sometimes referred to as Stepped Care Model. This model allows clinicians to meet students where they are and collaborate with the student to provide a tailored care plan to meet each student’s individual concerns, using evidence-based resources and treatments for those concerns while promoting autonomy and empowerment.
This model is not linear. A student does not start at the bottom and move through the steps one by one. After a triage/initial appointment the student will be provided an individualized care plan (ICP) with the most effective and least intensive intervention first. A student is stepped higher or lower based on outcomes and needs.
