It is important to know that the College does not provide emergency psychological aid at all times. We do not provide counseling to SJC staff or faculty members. We can, however, meet with non-student SJC personnel to aid in the process of finding an appropriate community referral.
Along with providing direct counseling services, the counselor can help students find other mental health professionals. For students who could benefit from off-campus psychological or psychiatric assistance, we have developed contacts with local providers.
Wabash Valley Alliance in Rensselaer, IN provides outpatient programs, psychiatric assessment services and coordination with inpatient facilities. Emergency services can be obtained through the emergency room at Franciscan Health - Rensselaer. Security will help with transportation, if needed.
