Behavioral Health Services
Attending college can be a stressful time for many students. We're here to make it a little easier.
At one time or another you may feel like the demands of balancing academic, social, work, and family obligations are becoming overwhelming and you're not sure where to turn. It happens to most students at some point in their college career. How you respond to these challenges and how they challenges impact your day-to-day life will vary greatly based on your coping abilities and personal situations. Knowing that mental health support is an increasing for our students, Harford Community College makes wellness services and resources readily available for all of our students.
Positive emotional health and wellness allows you to realize your full potential, cope with the stresses of life, work productively, and make meaningful contributions to our community. Don't suffer in silence. Our clinicians are here to help you. Make the call.
On-site/remote counseling is a free, confidential, appointment-based, short-term support service. Counseling sessions allow you to explore thoughts, feelings and worries without judgment; develop coping strategies for different situations; practice self-reflection and awareness; work on habits you’d like to change; and improve, understand, and communicate about relationships.
