The internet is riddled with mental health resources, but Googling and searching for something that speaks to you and feels safe isn’t helpful when you’re in the middle of an emergency. If you’re currently experiencing a mental health emergency, please contact JED Foundation ASAP, and if you’re on campus, you have access the IVCC Personal Counseling Assistance Program (P-CAP) that provides confidential and professional counseling assistance to enrolled students in emergency situations. Counselors are professionally trained in mental health, personal development and relationship issues and can provide immediate, short-term assistance.

Located in CTC-202, the mission of the IVCC Counseling and Advising Center is to EDUCATE, ADVOCATE, and EMPOWER. Students have access to academic advising, career planning, and transfer services. Schedule an appointment for semester schedules, program review, or course sequences. Whether you plan to transfer to a university, complete a career program, or dual-enroll as a high school student, working with counselors can keep you from taking unnecessary classes (*ah-hem* spending unnecessary money) or lose credits when transferring.
Enrolled students can also access the IVCC Personal Counseling Assistance Program (P-CAP) in times of emergency.
About P-CAP: “In the event you are experiencing a crisis or emergency situation when you are on campus, you will be given priority attention. Please come to the Counseling Center in CTC-202 or call 815-224-0361 or 815-224-0324. When calling or visiting, be sure to indicate that you need to speak to a counselor about a personal and urgent issue so that you can be given first priority.”
Counselors are professionally trained in mental health, personal development and relationship issues and can provide immediate, short-term assistance. Referrals may be made to community agencies, medical services or public assistance for continued services. IVCC does not provide long-term counseling services.
