Personal Counseling and Mental Health Services

The Advising, Counseling & Career Center provides a confidential setting where a student may discuss concerns and achieve a better understanding of themselves - their feelings, attitudes and capabilities.

Mental health assessments, counseling, crisis intervention, consultation and referral are available to all Normandale Community College students.
