"Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about." – John Watson
Your time at college has the possibility of being the best time of your life. It can also be the scariest. It might be the first time you have the freedom to make your own decisions. That freedom is exciting – but it can also mean a lot of stress and anxiety.
Everyone gets stressed out by school – it's normal, actually. But each of us manages stress differently. For some, it can feel like it's too much to handle. If you're feeling this way, know you're not alone. And know we're here to help.
A mental health counselor is available to assist all current SCC credit students. If you have personal issues that are interfering with your college career or student life, talk to us. If you're a current student, you can schedule an appointment by calling 636-922-8536.
Counseling sessions are:
- Free of Charge
- Short-Term & Solution-Focused
- 45-Minute Sessions
Workshops and Other Resources
If one-on-one counseling doesn't sound right for you, consider attending one of several mental health workshops that focus on a variety of issues.
Suicide Prevention-Resources and Support
SCC wants to make sure that all students have access to information about resources for support surrounding suicide prevention. If you, or someone you care about, are discussing suicide, please contact SCC Campus Police immediately at 636-922-8545.

One more thing: Just to be clear, the mental health counselor is not an academic advisor. Check out our Academic Advising page for information on meeting with an advisor.
