Mental Health Assistance

Camden County College is concerned about every student’s well-being. We realize that during these times of transition into the College environment many students are faced with challenges that may be difficult to handle alone. If you believe you may need help in dealing with personal issues, substance abuse, feelings of depression or prolonged sadness or anger, we encourage you to speak to an advisor, to the executive dean of enrollment and student services, or call the Department of Public Safety.
In order to provide professional services, Camden County College has entered into agreements with various providers who offer mental health services for those individuals in need of such a program. The purpose of these affiliations is to increase access to community mental health services for Camden County College students, as well as providing access for the Camden County mental health agencies to individuals in need of their services.
