Counseling Services

Sometimes the stress of managing classes, relationships and life in general can become overwhelming. NDSCS Counseling Services can help. Counseling is a process by which you and your counselor work together to better understand your thoughts, feelings and options. Even though you may believe that your problems are "not bad enough" or you may know someone else who has it worse, don't wait to seek help while the problem gets bigger. Seeking help early during a stressful time is important. Services provided are FREE and CONFIDENTIAL.

Students often wonder what can be helped with counseling. Please reach out if you need support regarding:

  • Depression, grief or stress
