Mental Health Counseling Services
Personal counseling is available to assist students in distress. Our licensed counselor provides free short-term or crisis counseling for students. If long-term help is needed, students are referred to appropriate external resources.
Students needing information on community resources such as childcare, medical care, and assistance for military families can access our Community Resource Guide. All listed resources are free or low-cost and are available in Bexar and surrounding counties.
For 24-hour crisis counseling or referral information, dial 2-1-1 or 210-227-HELP(4357).
The Strategies of Behavioral Intervention (SOBI) policy at the Alamo Colleges District was created to guide our College community to recognize, prevent and respond to incidents that are disruptive, threatening, or violent.
Examples include (but are not limited to):
- signs of harassment
- extreme anxiety
- threatening harm
- erratic behavior, or
- disconnect from reality
When in doubt, please report!
More often, faculty and staff will observe and report at-risk behaviors; however, students are encouraged to review the SOBI guidelines and report concerning behaviors to the SOBI response team.
