Emergency Help

Call Life Help Mental Health Center 24 hours a day at 662-453-6211-extension 0, the MDCC Police at 246-8011, or 911. If you have thoughts of hurting yourself or someone else, tell someone, and seek help. MDCC cares.

What to Expect
A counseling session is about you: You’re the boss. The counselor’s job is to listen and help guide you to where you want to go. The client and counselor together create a relationship. If you come prepared to discuss goals and what matters to you the most, you will benefit more from your session than if you take a backseat.

Length of Service
Like most college counseling centers, MDCC generally provides brief, solution-focused services. Some issues may take several sessions to work through. Should long-term services be appropriate, your counselor can assist you in finding an off-campus provider.

Confidentiality
Counseling information must remain confidential and secure; nothing is shared with anyone without your written permission except in specific legal exceptions listed below, or unless you indicate in writing that you wish the information to be communicated to specific persons outside the Office.

Exceptions to Confidentiality:
  1.  Clear and imminent physical or psychological danger to Yourself;
  2.  Clear and imminent danger to Another – every attempt will be made to warn the person;
  3.  Cases of suspected abuse of a Vulnerable Person – i.e., child, elder, disabled;
  4.  Court Subpoenas – legal advice to comply will be sought and followed.

Pathfinders Program

pathfinders
The Pathfinders Program is located on the second floor of the Tanner Building and provides focused strategies geared toward improving the success rates of African-American males. While the focus is on the retention of African-American males, the Pathfinder services are available to all MDCC students. The program aims to increase course completion rates, retention rates and graduation rates by providing strong academic support and mentoring. Students in the Pathfinders Program receive an array of services that include, but are not limited to, assistance with instruction, academic support services, financial aid and student social services. It is our ultimate goal to see the Pathfinder participants gain the confidence and skills necessary to persist in their courses and ultimately graduate from MDCC.
