EFSCares Student Counseling

As part of a College partnership with GEE Resolutions, EFSCares is a free, confidential student assistance program available to all part- and full-time enrolled students. EFSCares provides student assistance which may include one-on-one counseling, other behavioral health services and/or referrals. Simply call the phone number, 321-631-8569, and identify yourself as an EFSC student, and the GEE Resolutions staff will connect you with a trained professional who will assess your personal situation and schedule an appointment, provide referrals, and/or support as appropriate.

EFSC students receiving counseling services could receive up to six free individual counseling sessions per year. Counseling sessions are expected to be time limited and designed to provide students with short-term, solution-focused problem solving through coaching, guidance, and support as well as the development of an action plan and recommendations for further intervention, when appropriate.

Counseling services are arranged by GEE Resolutions and will take place at their office within the community or virtually, unless otherwise arranged by GEE Resolutions. This is a private, confidential service to help you when you need it most.
