Our Support Counseling Model

Built on 3 phases to help chatters navigate their problems

Establishing a Partnership

Support Counselors create a safe environment through active engagement and supporting without judgment. The Support Counselor also helps focus the conversation on the problem the student wants to explore.

Exploring Stress & Tolerance

The Support Counselor asks about the student's current stress level and explores what is causing their stress and how it manifests. Understanding how stress affects us is crucial to figuring out how to manage it!

Building Resiliency & Focused Planning

Support Counselors help evoke solutions from the student rather than problem-solving on their behalf. Together, they explore strategies and share tips for stress tolerance, building resilience, and cultivating a growth mindset.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Support Counseling a chatbot or artificial intelligence (AI)?

No, Oasis Support Counseling is not AI or a chatbot. Oasis Support Counselors are humans and trained mental health professionals! We only use a chatbot in the pre-session onboarding where we ask a few crisis screening questions, stress area domains, and initial stress score.  

Oasis Support Counselors are unlicensed professionals who have strong communication skills and 5 years of experience in the helping field. All Support Counselors complete an extensive 25-part training curriculum and are always overseen by Support Supervisors. 

Oasis Support Supervisors are licensed mental health professionals who oversee the Support Counselor’s work. Supervisors have at least a master’s degree in social work, counseling, or psychology and 2 years of experience in supervising and supporting staff in the mental health field. 

Our support modality is grounded in Motivational Interviewing (MI), which is a scientifically tested method for counseling and is viewed as an intervention strategy to respond to a person in crisis, treat lifestyle problems, and address unhealthy substance use and other risky behaviors. Our clinical model is observed and coached through a continuous quality improvement process that ensures fidelity to our model that supports the students, faculty, and staff we serve. Our trainings also focus on the principles of trauma-informed care and how to support special populations. 

Our Support Counseling reports give a de-identified overview of each session. You will get a live breakdown of the start time, duration, stress domain, stress subdomain, and topic tags. 

If a student is determined, in the professional judgment of the Oasis Counselor, or if the student selfidentifies as in-crisis, the student will be handed off to a higher-level counselor, or agreed upon crisis resources. During an emerging crisis, the counselor will stay in contact, either chat, phone or video, until the student is deemed safe, or an appropriate resource is co-engaged on the call. Select school administrators will be notified by email, text, or phone. A secure report is generated containing the student’s name, email, phone number, crisis indicator, handoff location, and handoff result.  

Yes. Oasis Support Counseling sessions are available up to 24/7/365 but we can also customize the scheduling availability to fit your needs and workflows.

English and Spanish speaking Support Counselors are available to chat with students. The Support Counseling chat can also be translated into 30 other languages with our real-time language translation setting.
