Student Handbook - Referral Services

Catalog and Student Handbook

The counselors have an index of agencies in the community and State. Students who seek an alternative to services provided by Germanna, or need specialized professional care unavailable at the College, can ask a counselor contact information and assistance in making appointments. Referral information is available in areas including substance abuse, family/psychological counseling, family planning, and many other areas. Many community services are offered at minimum or no cost. Following are some numbers that may assist in locating information and assistance. Most of them are toll free or local numbers, so calls for assistance can be placed without charge.

TIPS is a Threat Assessment, Incident Management and Prevention Service. It allows students, staff, faculty and others to confidentially report concerning behaviors or potentially harmful incidents. TIPS does not replace 911 for emergency situations. It is used to report situations where a person may cause harm to self or to others. TIPS allows this information to be communicated to the appropriate personnel and investigated immediately for a proactive response to maintain a safe campus. The link to TIPS is at the bottom of the Germanna Community College home page.
