Sharing Concerns, Arranging Counseling For Former Patients

We encourage anyone who wishes to share experiences or concerns regarding Dr. George Tyndall’s behavior to contact the dedicated helpline number 888-961-9273 or helpline@praesidiuminc.com.

Former student health center patients who need further support, we are also providing the option for free counseling with a provider of their choosing, which can be accessed through a third party and without further contact with the university at 888-961-9273 or helpline@praesidiuminc.com. These resources are also open for current USC students who wish to utilize them.


For Individuals Who Believe They are Class Members

You do not need to do anything right now. Once the court preliminarily approves the settlement, a notice of the settlement with further details will also be mailed to class members and disseminated in various other ways. If you would like to ensure you are kept informed about settlement claim procedures as they are rolled out, you may provide your updated contact information (name, mailing address, telephone number, email address) by phone or email by contacting 888-961-9273 or helpline@praesidiuminc.com.


Counseling for Current Students

All USC students may contact Counseling and Mental Health Services in USC Student Health for assistance; Call 213-740-WELL (9355).
