Given our current reality, we may have students who need additional support, whether it is academic, mental health or assistance in meeting basic needs. Instead of emailing, calling or texting individual staff members, please refer students to Student Services for help through the HU CAREs portal on the following Sharepoint ite: https://myharrisburgu.sharepoint.com/sites/StudentServices/SitePages/Referring-Students.aspx  Referring students through this portal is the best means for the Student Services team to coordinate support and maintain required student confidentiality. Referring students in need through Hu CAREs provides one point of referral and support can be triaged and prioritized from referrals made to the site.

That said, any HU student who is experiencing concerns such as anxiety, depression, or academic stress as a result of the current situation can contact the BHS Student Assistance Program. Students can login via the app/web, https://portal.bhsonline.com, or call 800-327-2251. The username is HarrisburgU. Outreach to BHS is confidential, and each student is assigned a master’s level clinician as a care coordinator. BHS will provide HU students with quality, in-the-moment support.
