Student health and wellness is important to us at South Plains College. Students perform better and are more likely to achieve their academic goals if those needs are met. Several other services are also housed in health and wellness:
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. Satellite centers and distance students are encouraged to contact us for local referral information or follow the link below.
