Sinclair Community College is now offering counseling services to students 24 hours a day, seven days a week through the 2021 academic school year. The expanded services are made possible through funding provided by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act’s Coronavirus Relief Fund (CRF) and the Governor’s Emergency Education Relief (GEER). Funding is also being used for data collection and student surveys.
A survey conducted during the fall term revealed that 34% of Sinclair students are concerned about their mental health.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has presented enormous challenges for students as they struggle to balance work, school, and home life,” said Alicia Schroeder, Director of Student Affairs – Sinclair Community College. “Dedicated counselors can now assist with defining goals and action steps for academic and personal success at any time to ensure our students get the help they need.”
Sinclair’s Counseling Services Department offers students free, confidential counseling to address and work on academic and personal concerns. The department’s mission is to meet a student where they are and assist them in taking steps to improve their lives.
Sinclair students can call (937) 512-3032 and can select the option of speaking to a counselor or scheduling a session.
