Counseling Center

Mission

The mission of the Counseling Center is to provide opportunities for students to define and actualize their potential toward personal, educational, and career goals through individualized, evidence-based, and culturally sensitive counseling services.

Goals

  • Deliver professional counseling services to students who are experiencing psychological and emotional distress so that they remain on track for their academic goals.
  • Assist students who are on academic probation to learn effective strategies for regaining good academic standing.
  • Offer preventive programs, outreach activities, and psychoeducational workshops that promote psychological wellness and enhance the student experience.
  • Support the campus community by providing effective crisis response and consultation to faculty and staff.
  • Foster student success and transition into York College through Student Development courses.

Confidentiality

Confidentiality is a central value at the Counseling Center. As in any other health care facility, all of your counseling records are considered private and confidential and are protected by law. However, there are certain circumstances in which confidentiality may not be protected, such as when a student is a danger to self or others or when a child or elder abuse is suspected.
