The Health and Counseling Center provides educational outreach on various mental health and wellness topics. To request an outreach, please complete the Outreach Request Form. The HCC aims to provide outreach services to the Carthage community, however, may not be able to commit to every outreach request as priority is made to serve our students and community through direct client care. HCC staff do not complete interviews for class projects during the school year but may be able to do so in June or August.
Carthage faculty and staff with concerns about a student’s wellness, mental health, or challenging personal situation can submit an alert through Navigate. Learn more about Navigate and how to submit an alert.
As a part of the HCC confidentiality practices and procedures, HCC staff may not be able to take action on the alert. If immediate action is required, contact the Dean of Students Office by calling 262-551-5800 during business hours. You may also contact Public Safety at 262-551-5911 at any time.
