Help for times of crisis

Help for times of crisis

As students at City College, everyday life can become a little stressful.

That is why City College offers Mental Health Counseling Services, located right above Student Health Services in room A-221.

Services are offered free of charge to any currently enrolled City student attending classes, and services are completely confidential.

Mental Health Services provides students with free individual, couples and group counseling provided by licensed clinicians and interns. Support and information on a variety of ailments are also provided.

If students  want to take advantage of the Mental Health Center, one needs to go in and fill out a quick questionnaire and wait for one of the clinicians to call and  set up an appointment. The clinicians do not leave messages to maintain confidentiality.

“Appointments here at MHCC are normally offered within 24 hours based on student schedule,” said Leslie Easton, coordinator at Mental Health Services.

“That far exceeds the community standard where it often takes several weeks to be seen.

If a student has limited availability and limited contact information it may take longer but we work very hard to get them in at the earliest available coordinated time.” Easton added.

If your need is more than what Mental Health  Services can accommodate, they will refer you to an outside source in the community, normally at low cost to the students.
