April is Counseling Awareness Month

Greetings from LLCC Advising, Counseling and Career Services! We wanted to take this opportunity to remind you that if you have concerns about a student or find them in crisis, we encourage you to call the counselor line: 217-786-9660.  This number is one that staff and faculty (not to be given to students) can call Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. if you need to refer a student for crisis intervention/counseling. When you call, a counselor on the main campus will answer, and then you can either have the student speak to the counselor via phone or the counselor can come to the student’s location. If it is after 5 p.m., or on the weekend, the counselor line will connect you with LLCC Police.

We offer short-term, solution-focused, confidential counseling services to currently enrolled students, free of charge. If you have concerns about a student, but they are not in immediate crisis, you may call 217-786-2224 and ask to speak to one of the counselors. We can then explain how we can reach out to the student of concern. Please note the counselor line is for immediate crisis only and not for issues related to classroom management or behavior; if that is the concern, please contact Leslie Johnson, AVP of student success.

Thank you for all that you do for LLCC students!
