Counseling Resources

 

Life is not always smooth sailing, especially considering the many demands of college. This is why Sandhills Community College offers you the assistance of professional counselors who can give you the opportunity to explore issues and share concerns about college life.

Our counselors are available to help you with academic, personal, mental or social issues that may be interfering with your academic success. They are trained professionals who can respond to your concerns in an objective and nonjudgmental manner.

There is no charge for counseling services and your sessions are strictly confidential.
Our counselors can refer you to local providers if you wish to seek counseling services off campus or if you need on-going, therapeutic counseling.
