Emotional Health and Concerning Behavior

​Like most people, you probably know of ways to cope with stress. But if you start feeling overwhelmed or anxious, seeing a college counselor can help you find practical solutions to personal or academic problems. Also, encourage people you know to check out the services if they sense they are getting stressed.

  • At most colleges, counseling faculty or other professional counselors are available by appointment or on a walk-in basis.
  • Counselors’ offices are located in either instructional divisions or in Advising and/or Counseling Centers.
  • Employee services are provided through the district’s Employee Assistance Program.

Finally, if you see someone exhibit concerning behavior (examples: angry outburst, threats of harming self or others, irrational conversation or speech) or know of someone in the college community who is an immediate threat to their own safety or the safety of others, call 911 from any district phone or 972-860-4290 on any available phone.
