Electronic mail is not a guaranteed safe nor immediate means to transmit confidential information.  If you want to inquire about counseling services or contact a counselor about how you are feeling, email is not an effective means of communication.  Due to the security risks and lack of immediacy, it is a FCC policy that clinicians restrict email contact with students for only the simplest of scheduling issues.  We urge students not to use email to relay any kind of confidential or time-sensitive information to FCC staff members.  If you are already seeing a counselor through the FCC and want to contact this clinician in between appointments, please call into the Center to communicate any information.

This is especially the case in any form of mental health emergency.  If an emergency occurs during office hours, call the Furman Counseling Center at 854-2092, or Health Services at 854-2091.  If an emergency arises after hours or on the weekends, telephone consultation is available by calling the After-hours Psychological Emergency Lines at (855) 622-1903.
