Counseling

College is a juggling act. Between classes, assignments, work, family, and friends, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. We know success comes from more than what you accomplish at work or school, so we can help you prioritize your wellness.

Counseling at STLCC

Wellness means more than simply physical health. But all too often, life forces us to put our own mental health on the back burner. Our counseling services give you the opportunity to slow down and focus on your mental health, all with the help of our trained counselors.

Counselor: a trained giver of personal, social or psychological guidance.

Meet the challenges you face everyday, with our free counseling in these areas:

Personal Counseling

Needing help is normal. Asking for help is brave. We know it may be hard to ask, but if you do, you’ll be met with a team of counselors who can help you through personal issues that may be getting in the way of college success, including:

  • Stress and anxiety
  • Depression
  • Family or relationship issues
  • Addiction
  • Suicide prevention and awareness resources

Contact us or stop by the counseling office on your campus to set up a free appointment with a STLCC counselor.

Ask, Listen, Refer Online Suicide Prevention Training Program

The St. Louis Community College Suicide Prevention Training Program was designed to help faculty, staff, and students prevent suicide by teaching you to:

  • Identify people at risk for suicide
  • Recognize the risk factors, protective factors, and warning signs of suicide
  • Respond to and get help for people at risk

This program takes about 20 minutes to complete. It is intended to be educational rather than therapeutic, and it must be completed in one sitting. Logging in and out of the program may cancel your progress and prevent you from obtaining your certificate of completion.
