Personal or Crisis Counseling

We understand that being a college student can present its challenges. Counselors are here to help students navigate through these challenges:

  • Assist students in finding solutions to personal problems that may be affecting their academic progress.
  • Provide short-term counseling and refer students to appropriate outside agencies for individual psychological or psychiatric therapy.
  • Offer support to students with a respect and understanding for their backgrounds, cultural values, gender, communication styles, abilities and weaknesses. 

Counselors may also assist in referring students to MSJC CARES. The CARES (Campus Assessment, Response, Evaluation, and Support) team provides a coordinated analysis and response plan for the college's high-risk students and critical incident cases within the framework of assuring a safe campus community.
