How to recognize that you are in crisis:

A crisis is an urgent concern that requires immediate assistance.  You may be in crisis, if:

  • You’re feeling overwhelmed
  • You’re having difficulty coping and managing emotions
  • You are overly anxious
  • Your thoughts are racing out of control
  • You are feeling unsafe
  • Your usual problem-solving strategies are just not working at this time

If you find yourself experiencing any of the feelings above, please email:

Robert Turner at rturner@manchestercc.edu

OR

Wanda I. Reyes-Dawes at.              wreyes-dawes@manchestercc.edu

If you are NOT in a crisis or facing an emergency but have a personal concern that requires further discussion, please call 860-512-3320 (voicemails being retrieved remotely and answered), or schedule an online appointment via your myCommNet / Insight (Webex).

Free and Anonymous Mental Health Screening

MCC is committed to the overall health of our students. As a service, MCC provides access to a free and anonymous screening tool for mental health-related issues, including alcohol use, suicide prevention, post-traumatic stress, generalized anxiety, bipolar and eating disorders.

The results of the screening are completely anonymous and made available only to the participant.

This resource is provided to assist students to determine if a consultation with a mental health counselor would be helpful.
