The counseling department has several Licensed Professional Counselors available to aid or service students needing assistance in dealing with any issues involving a traumatic incident at Mott Community College. Their training qualifies them to lend a helping hand to students with issues such as: anxiety, post-traumatic Stress, depression and/or grief. Should a student's issues be more than what can be addressed in a college counseling environment, our counselors can provide students with appropriate outside resources to support them.
A psychological crisis exists when an individual is threatening harm to him or herself or others or is out of touch with reality. Uncontrollable behavior and/or hallucinations could be manifested. If a psychological crisis occurs:
- Notify the Department of Public Safety at (810) 762-0222, activate the nearest emergency
call box or dial 0 from any MCC office phone. Provide the following information:
- Your name and location.
- Precise location of the incident.
- Observed symptoms or behavior,
- Individual's name, if known.
- Advise of any injuries.
- Avoid aggravating the situation. Do not argue with the individual. Do not attempt to physically detain or restrain him/her.
- Do not endanger your own safety.
- Upon arrival of public safety personnel, a determination will be made as to the need for emergency medical services or to contact the Dean of Enrollment and Retention to get a counselor to assist.
The Mott Care Team is a group of Student Success Specialists and Public Safety Officers trained in proactive support and personal crisis intervention.
