MENTAL HEALTH COUNSELING SERVICES

 

The Northern Wyoming Community College District Counseling Services mission is to assist students who are experiencing problems and concerns as they progress toward their academic goals.

It is not uncommon for students to experience problems such as loneliness, depression, uncertainty about a major or career, sexual/physical abuse, substance abuse, anxiety, eating disorders, conflict in relationships, lack of motivation, sexuality and sexual orientation.

When these concerns arise during the course of a student’s educational career, they tend to interfere with maximum academic performance.

The NWCCD Counseling Services is a free resource to help students confront these conflicts, develop personal awareness and skills to overcome problems allowing, them to take full advantage of their educational and academic opportunities.

Length of therapy varies, with a primary focus on short-term treatment directed at helping students function in a college environment. You and your therapist will determine the best approach for you.

NWCCDCS does not have the capacity to manage chronic conditions requiring intensive or frequent contacts or medication management. If our short-term care model will not adequately meet your needs, your therapist will discuss referral resources with you.

If the student requires additional intensive services, prescription medications, or medical/emotional stabilization, the therapist will work with the student to connect with agencies in the surrounding community for services, resources and/or stabilization.

If you are concerned about behavior by a distressed individual, please contact the Counseling Services office: 307-686-0254 ext. 2011 for a consultation or use the Incident Report Form below to request assistance by NWCCD’s CARE Team.
