Mental Health

College is a very exciting time that also presents many challenges and transitions for students.  For students who may be experiencing psychological, emotional, social and/or behavioral issues or who simply need additional support, we offer short term individual counseling on campus by licensed mental health professionals.  For students who may need psychiatric or other specialized services, counselors will help coordinate referral to appropriate resources.  Generally, students are scheduled for an appointment within a few days and can be seen the same day if necessary.  Students can call, email or stop by the Counseling Center on their campus to schedule an appointment.

In addition to counseling support, students are also seen for crisis intervention services.  If a student is experiencing a psychological emergency that is life threatening or involves imminent danger (risk of harm to self or others), contact the Department of Public Safety at (631) 451-4242 and/or 9-1-1 for immediate assistance.

SCCC is also partnered with the North Shore LIJ’s Behavioral Health College Partnership (BHCP) program, which works closely with the college to address behavioral health issues impacting students.   BHCP collaborates to provide state-of-the-art evaluation and evidence-based treatment for psychiatric crises and aftermath, as well as diverse challenges ranging from adjustment problems to major disorders emerging during the transition to college life.

SCCC CARES is a college wide initiative geared toward Creating Awareness and Readiness to End Stigma related to mental health issues in our campus communities. We are focused on educating our campus communities about brain health and wellness and the resources available on and off campus for support and treatment.  Outreach programming, workshops and other opportunities that promote wellness are available on each campus as part of this initiative.  You can also inquire on your individual campus about an SCCC CARES Club.
