Meet with a professional (CARE) Counselor.
This is a confidential and free service that is available to all

the Orange Park and St. Augustine campuses, as well as
help students connect with local community mental health
resources and services.

You could be struggling with anxiety, stress, depression, relationship issues, drugs or alcohol, the death of a loved one, financial difficulties, a challenging living situation or other issues or concerns.
