Counselors are available on campus during the day and after-hours throughout the week including Saturdays. Students may receive up to 10 free hour-long sessions where they can speak confidentially with a licensed counselor. Sessions during the day may be held either in person (on campus), by phone, or virtually. When filling out the form, please select either daytime or after-hours counseling.

After-hours sessions, including Saturdays, are only held virtually. MDC is collaborating with Mantra Health to offer virtual mental health care through a confidential and secure patient portal.
