Taking care of your mental health is so important to getting your education. But did you know that one in three young adults has experienced a mental health challenge?
College is already stressful, and it’s the most common time for mental health challenges to emerge. Remember that you're not alone at SCC, and we're here to help. SCC has partnered with the SC Department of Mental Health to make counseling more accessible to you, our students.
Investment in your mental well-being will set you on a healthy course for life. Please visit your private student account in your MySCC Portal to connect with SCC Counseling Services. All information is confidential.
