Students come to the Counseling Service to consult with clinicians about concerns related to stress and anxiety, identity development, relationship and family issues, depression, trauma, personal growth, and more. We strive to provide safe, confidential, and competent counseling services to the unique and diverse student population at MHC.

The Institute for the Study and Promotion of Race and Culture at Boston College has created a manuscript about trauma and the symptoms that members of communities of Color may experience after repeated personal and vicarious exposure to racism. Included at the end are "Racism Recovery Plan Steps." If you find yourself being affected by personal experiences of racism and/or exposure to events in the news, you may find this document helpful.
