HCCC serves its diverse communities with inclusive programs and services that promote student success and social and economic mobility. HCCC is not only a place where students grow intellectually but where they are felt cared for and supported and can develop the confidence to dream about the future. We support students from a holistic perspective, and the JED campus will help us continue our mission to support our students’ emotional well-being by helping us implement and identify programming that enhances emotional health, substance abuse, and suicide prevention efforts on campus. Our partnership with JED allows for the following:
Trauma can increase stress and anxiety levels, but research shows that pausing, taking a breath or a beat, and finding ways to create calm can help us cope with stressful situations.
The Press Pause project, launched in partnership with MTV and through Half of Us, uses breathing, movement, gratitude, and other tools to help you to decompress and regroup.
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.
