  • How does Individual or Group Counseling work?

    Individual counseling:

    Individual counseling is a personal opportunity to receive support and experience growth during challenging times in life. It is a process through which students work with a trained counselor—in a safe, caring, and confidential environment—to explore their feelings, beliefs, or behaviors, identify aspects of their lives that they would like to change, better understand themselves and others, set personal goals, and work toward desired change. Enrolled credited students can get up to 10 free counseling sessions. Call 815-280-2936 or email mentalhealthservices@jjc.edu.

    Group counseling:

    Group counseling is not available at this time due to COVID-19 restrictions. This service allows students to realize that they are not alone in their type of life challenge. To be involved in a group of peers who are in a similar place not only increases one’s understanding of the struggles around the topic but also the variety in the possible solutions available. Typically, groups have eight to ten participants, one or two group leaders, and revolve around a common topic like stress, anxiety, resilience and diversity. Enrolled JJC students can get up to 10 free counseling sessions.

  • What is Case Management?

    The case manager works to address the needs of students who struggle with mental health and wellness, relationship conflicts, personality and social adjustment issues, physical health and nutrition, trauma recovery and victim advocacy. The case manager serves as an advocate for student success. The case manager is responsible for the Office of Student Rights & Responsibilities referrals, as well as the Behavioral Intervention Team for students at-risk with mental health crisis and social support needs through interventions and connection to follow-up services.

Please be sure your address information is current within our system (contact admission@jjc.edu for address corrections). If the student's account was paid by credit/debit card, a credit will be issued back to the same credit/debit card.  However, if the student has a financial obligation still owed to the school (ex: tuition; book voucher; fines) their debt will be deducted from their refund (exclusions apply).
