Brittany,

I apologize for the delayed repose. The initial request was blocked through our system.

I am trying to determine exactly what information you are seeking.

Penn Highlands does not provide behavioral health counseling. We do have a licensed counselor on staff who provides educational counseling and does triage any mental or behavioral health issues. These services are not paid for by the students and are generally short term as we provide information on available behavioral health services to students and assist them in contacting and engaging with those providers.

From my perspective, most of my answers to your request will be that we do not track or have that information.

I want to be able to help so if there is a part of your request that I am not understanding please share that with me so that I can support your efforts.

Thanks,
