MCC coordinates with local social service agencies to bring their offerings to campus.
We have agreements with licensed therapists to provide services to students. Below is a brief bio and calendar link to set up an appointment. MCC, thanks to the Student Government Association (SGA), has paid for a 30-minute assessment, and two one-hour sessions at no additional cost to students. Therapy sessions are provided in virtual and in-person settings. We are also working on expanding those options for students lacking the means to continue treatment beyond those limits.
