Request an Appointment or Access a Counselor Now
Tyler Junior College Counseling provides brief, solution-focused counseling for students who are facing personal difficulties that have become a barrier to academic success. The overall goal is to assist the student by stabilizing mood, discussing plausible solutions and providing information about services both on campus and in the community that may be of assistance. Students must be currently enrolled at TJC in order to receive services. There is a six-session limit in a long semester for campus based counseling and a six session limit per year for online sessions with our telehealth partner, TimelyCare, which accommodates most students. However, long-term or intensive psychological/psychiatric issues may require an immediate referral in order to start and complete a successful mental health treatment regimen.
The best way to make an appointment for the on-campus counselor is to fill out the counseling appointment request at the above link. (Only the student requesting the appointment should fill out the request form.) To make an appointment for an online, telehealth counselor visit timelycare.com/tylerjc and install the app or follow the prompts.
If a student is in need of immediate assistance they may access the TimelyCare service called “TalkNow” which provides 24/7 emotional support with expert counselors or go directly to the emergency room of their preferred hospital. Emergency room visit is recommended for a student who feels they are “in crisis” and need immediate mental health attention.
