Student Well-Being

College can be a challenging time. We know you have a lot going on in life from academics, to work, to family and personal relationships.

Talkspace

LLCC is excited to announce a new partnership with Talkspace, an online therapy resource. We want to provide you with additional support to help you reach your goals. Through Talkspace, we are providing all LLCC students with a free monthly 30-minute live (synchronous) video session and free unlimited text, voice and video therapy messaging with a Talkspace therapist. Students have the ability to choose therapists based on all sorts of needs/interests including race/ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, veteran status, religious preference, language preference, etc. Additionally, Talkspace uses a secure and confidential HIPAA and FERPA compliant app. Talkspace also has lots of resources about common diagnoses, coping mechanisms and exercises such as “Overcoming Worry.” You can learn more by going to Talkspace and use the keyword found in your LLCC email or on Canvas.

LLCC has confidential advisors who have special training to confidentially assist students experiencing sexual harassment, intimate partner/domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking.
