The Office of Case Management within Wellness Services serves the Lewis & Clark College community and individual students by providing referrals, problem-solving, consultation, campus office navigation, and advocacy for those who are experiencing difficulty or distress. Our office specializes in helping students make connections to other campus services as well as to health care on- and off-campus. Common areas of concern that we see in our office include issues involving both mental and physical health, substance use, eating disorders, learning differences and financial obstacles.
We empower students to build personal resiliency and develop strategies to overcome barriers to success, and we serve as a partner on the path to graduation. The Office of Case Management is directed by Aimée Polzin. Aimee is a licensed professional counselor with an M.A. from Lewis & Clark. Her office is part of the Health Promotion suite in lower Odell Hall.
Please be aware that while service animals are welcome in our clinics, other animals are not allowed. This stance was adopted out of concern for students and staff with allergies
The Office of Case Management is staffed 8:30 am - noon on Mondays and 8:30 am - 5:30 pm Tuesdays through Fridays, when classes are in session. If you have an urgent mental health situation on Monday afternoons that cannot wait until Tuesday, please contact Francine Key, Administrative Specialist for Wellness Services, at 503-768-7160.
If you are a student in crisis, the Counseling Service has a list of resources that will help you connect to immediate support. If you are aware of someone in the Lewis & Clark Community who may be a potential health or safety risk to themselves or others, contact the Welfare Intervention Network (WIN).
For a new appointment you will need two separate forms: Information About Services and New Student Form. Some of these forms are multiple pages, so you may want to print them double-sided in order to save paper. Print two copies of “Information About Services”: keep one for yourself, and bring the other to your appointment.
