Services We Offer

We want to make mental health counseling as accessible as possible. To do this we offer:

Counseling Sessions With FRCC Counselors

These are offered on campus or virtually. Our counselors will work with you to determine what services and resources would be most helpful.  If your needs fall outside of the scope of our services, we provide referrals to community providers.

Drop-In Support on FRCC Campuses

We also offer brief drop-in support on all of our campuses, Monday - Thursday, 2 - 3 pm. You can meet with an FRCC counselor for 15-20 minutes to get support, problem solve, learn about services or make an appointment.

Virtual Sessions Through BetterMynd

If you need to schedule outside of regular business hours or our looking for someone with a specific set of expertise, FRCC has partnered with BetterMynd to offer students access to free video-therapy sessions with their diverse network of licensed mental health counselors.
