Health Services recognizes that college can be a stressful time for students. We've used the National College Health Assessment tool to survey the mental health concerns of MCC students. Depression, anxiety, sleep, stress and relationship problems were identified as the top mental health issues. If these are concerns for you or a friend, there are many resources available to help you, both on campus and in the community.
In the event of a mental health emergency:
If you are concerned that you or a friend could harm themselves or someone else, you cannot and should not try to manage this situation by yourself. Please call for help:
