The counseling professionals in Health and Wellness at South Plains College endeavor to provide a safe and confidential environment for students to come for help with personal or relationship issues that are affecting their performance in life and school. Counseling is a therapeutic service offered over a period of time to help the client adapt to changes in life, difficult circumstances, and support the student's academic success efforts.

Trained and licensed mental health professionals are available to students at the Levelland Campus and Reese Center locations.  Students are seen on an appointment basis, but are welcome to come in at any time during operating hours to complete initial screening paperwork and to set their appointments. For students who need emergency assistance please see the emergency contact information below.
