Welcome to Counseling Services.

The mission of Mercer County Community College is to prepare students for academic, professional and personal success. To achieve that goal it's important to focus on the needs of the whole person: academic, personal, physical, emotional, interpersonal, social and spiritual. To that end we have experienced counselors who are dedicated to helping you achieve your academic, career and personal goals.

Sometimes you need someone to listen and hear you when you talk. Sometimes you need someone to help you figure out where you're going. Counseling Services strives to maximize individual growth and success by assisting you with personal challenges that may interfere with your academic, professional or personal progress.

The Counseling Center provides free and confidential short-term counseling, outreach, education, consultation and crisis management in a supportive and professional environment. These services help you resolve personal difficulties and acquire skills, abilities and knowledge that will allow you to take full advantage of your college experience and make effective and satisfying life choices.

  • Anxiety
  • Relationship issues
  • Stress
