COVID and Your Mental Health

Now, during the COVID-19 pandemic, your stress level might be even higher than normal. You can learn  coping strategies in the video we've posted plus reach out for free assistance.

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.

Getting a college degree is an exciting and prosperous adventure; however, you may face challenges along the way. Don’t let issues you may be having prevent you from getting your degree. Get the help you need today!
