Mental Health counseling


To all current Parkland students, professional faculty counselors in the Counseling Service department offer:

  • Free, short-term, solution-focused, and confidential mental health counseling.  
  • Referrals to community agencies, when appropriate.
  • Psycho-educational workshops on a variety of topics. For Spring 2020, we are offering the "Managing Stress and Anxiety" Workshop series. Please see below for more information.

Counselors are available from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. To schedule an intake appointment to learn more about our services, please call our office at 217/351-2219 or stop by the office. We are located in U-267.

If you need immediate assistance in case of medical or other emergencies, the Campus Police office at Parkland College is staffed 24 hours, and can be reached at 217/351-2369. Public Safety officers are available to anyone on the campus — students, faculty or staff.

If this is after-hours and you are in need of assistance, please call THE CRISIS LINE at 217/359-4141. They provide 24-hour suicide prevention and crisis hotline to the Champaign County area.
