We care about student success and quality of life. Through the Northern Wyoming Community College District Counseling Services, we provide holistic and confidential mental health services. We strive to educate, empower, and support NWCCD students to promote personal, interpersonal, professional, and academic growth. Information disclosed in session is held to the American Counseling Association’s standard of confidentiality.

  • Grief and loss
  • Panic disorders
  • Text anxiety
  • PTSD

Other Services

Crisis Intervention
If a crisis occurs, the counselor can assist the person in the use of problem solving and stress management skills to regain a sense of control and return to their prior level of healthy functioning.

Community Referrals
Community referrals will be provided for those needing intensive counseling, drug/alcohol evaluations, long-term counseling, or psychiatric medical services.

Consultations
Free consultations are available for students, parents (with appropriate release of information), faculty, or staff on mental health related concerns, community or online resources, or classroom issues. If we cannot be of help, we will direct you to someone who can.

Presentations
Presentations, workshops, and awareness events are offered to discuss mental health related issues. Workshops and consultations may be requested at any time.

Stress and Depression Screening
NWCCD offers a unique, confidential service to all students who question whether counseling is right for them. Made available through the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, the questionnaire is a free and confidential way to help you understand a little bit about how you’re doing. NWCCD’s trained counselors will help you find treatment and resources. This service is not a substitute for counseling.

Counselors are here for students

NWCCD counselors offer dozens of outreach events to students throughout the year, actively engaging them through student events and activities. Individually, counselors focus on short-term treatment directed at helping students function in the college environment.

Students are encouraged to meet with counselors for consultation, crisis intervention, and/or help with academic or interpersonal concerns. Students and their counselors will determine the best approach for you. Counselors work with students to accommodate busy schedules. If the student requires additional and/or intensive services, the counselor will work with the student to connect with agencies in the surrounding community for services.
