Mental Health Counseling

Mental Health Counseling (also called Personal Counseling) in a community college setting places emphasis on psycho-educational and developmental issues. Typically, the focus is on managing temporary problems of daily living, rather than treating psychological disorders. 

A counselor can help you think about events in a more rational way, so that you can gain perspective, make good choices, and experience less stress. And, of course, a counselor can help you with academic issues, such as test anxiety. A community college counselor can also screen you for depression, anxiety, and other psychological disorders and, if necessary, refer them to community resources that provide therapy.

Counseling Services offers a friendly, supportive environment where free, confidential services are provided for you. The following Mental Health services are provided by Counseling Services:

  • Short-term Therapy
  • Assessment
  • Substance Use (Alcohol and other drug) Screening
  • Crisis Intervention
  • Appropriate Referrals for Treatment
  • Free, Anonymous, and Confidential Online Assessments:
