Mental Health Counseling
Mental Health Counseling is offered to help enrolled Students cope with the stressors that may be impacting their academic career, or professional goals. These stressors can result in a lack of motivation, Depression, Anxiety, and challenges in family and relationships. Additionally, COVID-19 has affected the nation, including our College Community. During the pandemic, many of our students have experienced a loss of family and friends, grief, isolation, and many other problems that may influence their well-being.
