Behavioral health – which includes mental health, substance use, and more – is a key part of your overall well-being. Brief screenings are the quickest way to determine if you or someone you care about should connect with a behavioral health professional. Think of these as a checkup from your neck up. This program is completely anonymous and confidential, and immediately following the brief questionnaire you will see your results, recommendations, and key resources. 

Mental Health Screening

Thriving Campus

Some students may need to seek specialized services outside of UNCG.  Use this resource to find a therapist or treatment program off-campus. 

The UNCG Off-Campus Mental Health Treatment Fund provides for immediate financial needs that arise as students seek mental health treatment off campus. Funds can be used for (but are not limited to) counseling/therapy, transportation and psychiatry/medication management.

The UNCG Off-Campus Mental Health Treatment Fund provides for immediate financial needs that arise as students seek mental health and substance use treatment off campus. Funds can be used for (but are not limited to) counseling/therapy, treatment programs, insurance co-pays, transportation and psychiatry/medication management.

BASICS stands for Brief Alcohol Screening and Intervention for College Students. CASICS stands for Cannabis Screening and Intervention for College Students.

These programs are offered for all UNCG students who may want to explore their alcohol and drug use, but the goal of the program is to reduce risky behaviors and harmful consequences of alcohol or cannabis abuse. Contact Us:

BASICS and CASICS are NOT “Just Say No” or abstinence-only. They are designed to assist students in examining their own choices in a judgment-free environment. The BASICS/CASICS facilitator* will provide objective feedback, based on an interview and questionnaires filled out by the student, to encourage positive changes in behavior. Essentially, BASICS/CASICS will provide the information and guidance, but what a student chooses to do is entirely up to them.  

Who can join BASICS/CASICS?  

Some students attend BASICS/CASICS to fulfill a university sanction or court order because of an alcohol or cannabis related offense, while others come because they have concerns about their alcohol or cannabis use. BASICS/CASICS is appropriate for anyone who uses alcohol or cannabis and is concerned about their use.   

If a student chooses to participate in BASICS/CASICS to complete a university or court ordered requirement, we can provide documentation of program completion if a student signs a release of information form. We will not release any assessment results or personal information shared during the BASICS/CASICS appointment.  

UNCG has a robust Drug and Alcohol Prevention Program for faculty, staff and students.
