Mental Health on the Internet

David L. Gilles-Thomas

The University at Buffalo's Counseling Center was one of the very first counseling centers to go on-line in the U.S. In 1994 the Counseling Center established a simple gopher site, consisting of basic departmental information and some self-help materials for students. Since then, the Counseling Center's web developments have expanded greatly, and now include resources for students, staff, faculty, as well as resources for counseling center professionals across the country. From the days of the gopher site, to the current web pages, the Counseling Center has been committed to capitalizing on the inherent nature of the internet: interconnection across geographical distances, and so the Center's web pages regularly include links to other UB resources as well as internet resources around the world. As a result of the Center's web projects, they very quickly established themselves as a national leader in the development of university-based counseling web resources.

Some of the current web-based resources maintained by the Counseling Center include:
