Staff and faculty are usually the first people a student will approach when stressed; how one responds can deter or help a student connect with the appropriate resources. We want to challenge the HCCC community to participate in these training opportunities, learn how to use correct language and develop skills to support your students.
Mental health initiatives included:
Training staff, faculty, and students on Mental Health First Aid, QPR (Questions, Persuade, Refer), and JED campus.
CONFIDENTIALITY: Rights to privacy and confidentiality are taken seriously. Communications between the counselor and student are privileged, confidential, and safeguarded by our staff. Counseling records do not become part of educational history. Counseling information is not released to anyone outside of the Counseling Center without a student's written permission. We will not release your records unless we have written consent. However, there are four exceptions to confidentiality: (1) Imminent harm to yourself, (2) Imminent harm to others or property, (3) Abuse of children, the elderly, or the disabled, and (4) Staff consultation and supervision.
