SCC Counseling Services: Taking care of your mental health is important.  Investment in your mental well-being will set you on a healthy course for life.  

Did you know that one in three young adults has experienced a mental health challenge?   College is already stressful, plus it’s the most common time for mental health challenges to emerge.  You are not alone!  It is common—and treatable.  
SCC has partnered with the SC Department of Mental Health to make counseling more accessible to you, our students.
