Information:  As an integral part of the Marshall University Behavioral Health Center (BHC) and in keeping with its mission, Outreach develops relationships with our campus community by extending the services of clinical counselors beyond the physical site to the campus as a whole. We cast a wide net and are intentional in planning systematic, and creative psycho-educational programming that emphasizes a multicultural and developmental perspective on prevention, wellness, and student self-help. We collaborate with other staff and programs within the broader campus and Tri-State community as well as with other departments and units to enhance the general campus climate. The Marshall University (BHC) values a campus climate that provides a safe and optimal learning environment for all students. In keeping with this mission, the BHC is committed to providing leadership in areas of diversity that include but are not limited to LGBT populations, international student populations, first generation college students, and cultural/ethnic minority student populations.
