Student Support Services Counseling is
Eastern Maine Community College’s free and confidential
counseling service for students. We strive to attend to the
mental health needs of EMCC students while also providing
outreach, education, consultation, and crisis management for the
larger EMCC community. The counseling office is located in
Katahdin Hall, Room 312.
While attending EMCC, you may encounter many transitions and
changes. Our programs and services are intended to support you
through these experiences, help you achieve your academic goals,
and find ways of leading a more fulfilling life. We endeavor to
provide these services in an environment that is comfortable and
welcoming for all students.
