COVID-19: Updates on what CCS services will be able to provide at this time and how they impact Peter Oduwole’s role in ODI

Below are updates on what ODI understands CCS services to be able to provide at this time and how they impact Peter Oduwole's role in ODI:

CCS is suspending all in-person appointments (including group and Let's Talk) and hosting 30 minute virtual (Zoom or phone) consultations instead. For students not already engaged with services, we are still offering phone triage opportunities as well as urgent consultations (https://ccs.osu.edu/schedule-a-phone-screening/). The consultations will be structured similarly to Let's Talk, which means they will be problem solving/crisis appointments. Ongoing appointments will continue as agreed upon by the clinician and the client.

On the CCS website (https://ccs.osu.edu/mental-health-strategies-video-series/), you will find a newly developed video series about managing stress during these uncertain times. These will take the place of our in-person daily workshops. Students can still access the OSU Wellness App for tips to manage mental duress during this time as well as the Peer Access Line and Protocall (call the CCS front desk at 614-292-5766 and press “2”) during the evening and weekend hours.

As developments continue to come about the university's response to COVID-19 as informed by the CDC and other governmental public health agencies, information about services being offered may continue to adjust and evolve. Please continue to check back here or the CCS website (https://ccs.osu.edu/) for updates.

Let's Talk goes virtual

CCS is excited to announce that Let's Talk is being provided virtually now. Students can sign up for 20 minute slots at this link: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0545a8a729a5f85-lets. Please read through the disclaimer as if you would if you were in person. Here's an overview of Let's Talk as a service per CCS's website: https://ccs.osu.edu/about-us-and-our-services/lets-talk/

This week, Let's Talk will be hosted by Peter Oduwole, LPC on both Thursday 4/2 and Friday 4/3 from 2-4p via Zoom. We are moving to hosting it everyday from 2-4p next week and CCS staff will alternate it's hosting.

If the student is uncomfortable doing video chat, they can provide their phone number so that they can be reached through Skype for business for their meeting. The student should sign up for Let's Talk preferably a day before they would like to meet but since this is the first week trying this approach, they can sign up by noon of the day they would like to meet. This would give Peter time to send the Zoom link to everyone who needs it.
