Our counselors Alex and Christine are still available to offer various levels of support to our students, depending on location. We may change our services in accordance with new CDC recommendations but for now we can offer phone check-ins and virtual counseling (telemental health.) Please check the Counseling Services page on my.Lakeland for more details.
Students are encouraged to access the Counseling Center with any concern, however small or large it may seem. Generally speaking, the sooner a situation is discussed the better, even if the student is unsure whether or not the situation is "a real problem." We respect students’ rights to privacy and we strive to respect and understand their unique background and beliefs.
