Parent Information

Now that my student is away from home, how can I ensure that health care needs are being met?
  • Encourage your student to visit Hollins Health and Counseling to learn what services are offered
  • Encourage them to talk with someone if you feel that they are having difficulty with the transition of leaving home and starting a new adventure.
  • Encourage your student to take advantage of services provided such as counseling, flu vaccines, free literature, workshops and groups.
  • Make sure your student is aware that all information in their health record is confidential and that no one can access it without their written permission.
What if my student needs a higher level of care?
  • Ensure that your student carries a copy of their health insurance card with them
  • Make sure that they know their health history (allergies, current medications, and family history)
  • Know if your student is evaluated in our health center and if a higher level of care is needed, staff will make sure an appropriate referral will be made.
What if my student has special needs, what is offered?
  • Each student with special needs is welcomed to speak with staff in Health and Counseling Services to discuss needs and how they can be accommodated.
  • Health and Counseling Services is accessible to all students by steps or elevator.
