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 adviser in the Office of the Dean of Students 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. At present, Camden County College has affiliations with the following agencies:


1.
South Jersey Behavioral Health Resources, located in Camden, New Jersey – Provides an array of behavioral health and human services, including assessment and referral, individual, family and group therapy, psychiatric evaluation and medication monitoring.


2.
Center For Family Services, located in Camden, New Jersey – Provides comprehensive multi-component crisis interventions, including but not limited to students whose lives have been disrupted by a traumatic experience.


3.
Hispanic Family Center of Southern New Jersey, with various offices located in Camden, Voorhees and Williamstown, New Jersey – Assists individuals struggling with issues such as anxiety, depression and psychosis. The Center offers bilingual and bicultural therapists.


Participation is confidential; cost is on a sliding scale.
