MCC has a Wellness Counselor who is a licensed mental health counselor, and who specializes in emotional wellness and mental health issues. Students can meet with the Wellness Counselor if they have any concerns about their mental health. The Wellness Counselor can assess what is going on in the student’s life and assist the student with referrals to community resources, if needed. These services are confidential and free of charge for enrolled students.
