Counseling and
Mental Health Services

SCC counseling faculty work with you to offer support and direction with your educational, personal, and professional goals. Counselors also may provide short-term mental health counseling for a variety of challenges.

However, if the problem is of an intense psychological nature, the counselor will refer you to an appropriate agency outside of Spokane Community College. Students may also be referred to masters-level mental health interns at SCC for therapy.

Please view our Confidentiality Statement for more information.
