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.

An example of some of the issues we can help with:

  • Anxiety
  • Relationship issues
  • Stress
  • Self-esteem issues
  • Anger
  • Sadness
  • Depression
  • Confusion about goals
  • Grief

Let’s Chat!

Let’s Chat is a free, private virtual drop-in service where registered Mercer County Community College students can have an informal consultation with a licensed counselor on a first-come, first-served basis via Zoom. The session is brief, no more than 20 minutes, and is designed to help students with specific problems and to introduce them to what it is like to speak with a counselor. The counselor will listen closely to your concerns and provide support, perspective, and suggestions for resources in addition to determining whether formal counseling would be useful. “Let’s Chat” is NOT counseling or a crisis service. You may want to visit Let's Chat if you:

  • are not sure about counseling and if it will benefit you
  • are not interested in on-going counseling but would like the perspective of a counselor
  • are looking for guidance and resources
  • already have an outside treatment provider, but need immediate support that cannot wait until your next appointment
  • have a specific problem and would like to talk with someone who is objective
  • need assistance with stress management
  • have academic concerns
  • have career questions

Fall 2020 Drop-In Hours: Mondays, Tuesdays, Fridays 9am – 12pm
