As May came to an end, the need for awareness of mental health did not. There are a handful of mental health resources on and around EvCC that are tailored specifically for students and people in the Everett community.

Allison Werling, a faculty counselor for TRiO, offers resources for students to receive mental health counseling.

 

TRiO

Allison Werling, a faculty counselor said, “TRiO is a student support service that offers frequent academic advising, career and personal counseling, financial aid navigation, tutoring, and transfer assistance.” TRiO offers these services to all EvCC students who have goals to receive an associate’s degree or to transfer to a four-year university.

TRiO has many objectives surrounding mental health awareness. Werling said, “Mental health awareness also teaches us to give grace to others. I define grace as our ability to love people for who they are, regardless of what we think about them, because we’re all humans doing the best we can with what we have; we never truly know what someone else is going through.”

We’re all humans doing the best we can with what we have; we never truly know what someone else is going through.”

EvCC’s Center for Disability Services

Another service that allows students the resources for mental health help and guidance is the EvCC Center for Disability Services (CDS). The CDS is located on the third floor of Parks Student Union building in room 335. They offer a variety of accommodations that are crafted to the needs of the individual, which is paramount to student success. Some of their accommodations include: faculty letters, exam accommodations, alternative furniture, note taking and tape-recorded lectures.

According to the CDS mission statement that is posted on the EvCC website, “The Center for Disability Services (CDS) office at Everett Community College provides a variety of accommodations for students with disabilities and academic barriers.” With eight CDS staff members, students will be able to receive the adequate help they need for success.

CHC of Snohomish County Everett College Clinic

At EvCC’s main campus in Everett, many students walk by the Community Health Center(CHC) located on Broadway, next to the student Walt Price Student fitness center, on their way to and from classes or the gym. The CHC of Snohomish County Everett College Clinic is a unique resource that treats students with medical and mental health needs and is a resource for the Everett community members as well.

Although they may not be visible to the eye, mental health disorders can diminish a person’s quality of life.”

— CHC of Snohomish County

“Although they may not be visible to the eye, mental health disorders can diminish a person’s quality of life. These can make common activities extremely challenging and change a person’s outlook on the world. Mental disorders affect people of all ages, so finding specialized assistance for your specific case is very important,” said CHC on its website regarding behavioral health.

The CHC understands that mental health can come in all forms. That’s why there is a Behavioral Health Service Line available during business hours which is a discrete and easy way to create an appointment, focusing on mental health, and an effort-free option to speak to a behavioral health specialist immediately.

The issues surrounding mental health should be more prevalent than just a month of awareness. There are resources for students and for the community to shed light on the silent issue that is detrimental to success and peace of mind.
