Mental Health Services & Resources

In order to support MCC students’ academic success, a licensed mental health counselor is available to meet with enrolled students for mental health assessment, and, if needed, referral to treatment providers and resources in the local community, as well as to other support services within the College. These mental health services are brief, confidential and are offered to enrolled students at no charge.

Services are provided by appointment, either on the Bedford Campus, Enrollment Center, Room 217, or remotely.

If you are in crisis, call 911 or go to your local hospital Emergency Room. Other crisis resources are listed further down this page.
