JCCC counselors are available to assist with personal issues or problems you may experience and to help you find solutions.
Sometimes personal issues can affect academic progress. JCCC counselors provide a safe and confidential environment to talk about personal concerns. We advocate for students and assist with personal issues and make referrals to appropriate agencies when needed.

JCCC Student Assistance Program
If you are a student, you may be referred by a JCCC counselor to our short-term student assistance program to help you with emotional or mental health issues. Call 913-469-3809 to work with a counselor to help you begin this process. You must be referred by one of our JCCC counselors to use the services.
We have a contract with ComPsych Guidance Resources to provide consultation, short-term counseling and referral assistance for students with personal or mental health issues. Your referral from one of our counselors will allow you to use up to five free sessions of this program.
ComPsych has many providers throughout the Kansas City metropolitan area.
Referrals made by ComPsych providers are not free of charge and any costs will be discussed with the student prior to being referred.
