Students who consider community college a pleasurable experience generally develop increased self-awareness, a sense for the future, and a sense of belonging. Although community college is a joyful time for many, FCC students are not exempt from the sometimes stressful realities of being a student. New stressors and past problems can compromise a student’s goals and sense of well-being if not managed appropriately. Our clinical staff at Psychological Services has a rich history of providing support for such students. We invite you to explore our newly designed web site or visit our office in person.
