Mississippi Delta Community College offers academic, career, and personal counseling for students. Counseling supports the college’s mission by helping to alleviate barriers to student success.
Counselors are available at all MDCC sites, Monday-Thursday, 8am-5pm.
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.
