With the stay at home order and the switch to on-line instruction, the MCC Counseling Team would like you to know that we care about you, and we are here to help.

We realize that with this constant state of change, you may be dealing with the frustration of the new remote learning format, and quite possibly you may be experiencing additional concerns/issues and barriers that have arisen due to recent events. With this unprecedented public health event and the efforts to slow the spread, it is normal to have lots of emotions in varying degrees.

For many, this perceived loss of control, social isolation and unexpected change of plans can be really difficult. The counselors at Metropolitan Community College want you to know that we are a resource that you can use. If you would like to talk with one of us, you can click the “Meet Our Counselors” page for email links or contact us by phone at 816.604.1000.
