This week is National Suicide Prevention Week and the counselors here at LLCC want to remind you that we are here to help any student that is facing a stressful, emotional situation such as a family concern, trying to balance school and work obligations, depression, anxiety, etc. Licensed counselors are on staff and always available to talk to a student needing support.If you encounter a student that may need our help, please let the student know they can walk in to Advising, Counseling and Career Development Services or call us at 786-2224 to speak to a counselor by phone or make an appointment to meet with one of us.
Part of our role is to assist in crisis situations where a student may be having suicidal thoughts or even has a suicide plan. If the student is in crisis, you can call the Counselor’s Line at 6-9660 and you will be immediately connected with a counselor. If it is after 5 p.m. or on a weekend, please call the LLCC Emergency number 786-2222 and an officer will be dispatched to assist the student. Thank you for all you do for our students and, remember, we are here to help!
