Personal Counseling

Personal Counseling

When a John A. Logan College student encounters a personal crisis in their life, or is in need of personal counseling, there are resources available on campus. Students should come into the Student Success Center, C219, and ask to speak to the available crisis counselor. Logan crisis counselors will help a student evaluate their situation, address immediate concerns, and connect with resources specifically chosen to meet their needs. This service is designed so that students in need will be seen immediately or within a relatively short time between 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM on days the campus is open.

For situations arising outside of the stated available times for personal counseling, students are encouraged to contact resources from the list below that apply to their situation and then follow up with a crisis counselor at the first available time:
