The mission of Northeast Community College Counseling Services is to provide mental health services from a holistic approach; educating, empowering, and supporting the students of Northeast in order to promote personal, interpersonal, professional, and academic growth.
We strive for all served to feel welcomed, respected, safe, and helped. A place where students are assisted in reaching their full capacity to learn, love, work, connect, and give as responsible citizens of the world.
Effective counseling requires an atmosphere of privacy and mutual trust. We feel it is important to discuss these issues of privacy and confidentiality at the outset of counseling so that there are no misunderstandings regarding them and so that you know what to expect from us. If you have any questions regarding any of this, your counselor will be glad to discuss them with you and answer them to the best of his or her ability.
In accord with professional, legal, and ethical guidelines established for providers by the National Association of Social Workers Northeast Community College, Counseling Services maintains records of all counseling services. All Counseling records are kept separate from other records and are accessible only to the Student Services staff. Information regarding your involvement in Counseling Services is released to outside agencies only with your written permission and only to specific and clearly identified individuals or in the event of a court order.
