EFSCares Virtual Sessions: Apr. 21 & 26

 
 
 
 

April's virtual student mental health sessions focus on dealing with stress. These confidential events via Zoom are just for EFSC students and feature Symoné Mendez, a licensed mental health counselor. Review details below and check your Titan Email for the private Zoom access link and passcode.

Wednesday, April 21 at Noon OR
Monday, April 26 at 4 PM

In this EFSCares Conversation Symoné Mendez, LMHC will discuss how to identify stress and what you can do to address it. While stress is very much a shared experience, we often experience it in different ways. You won’t want to miss out on these safe and open discussions. As with all EFSCares services, participation is confidential. Again, check your student email for the private links.

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.

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!
