Support Groups are offered through Counseling & Career Services to assist students who would like to gain support, increase self-awareness and learn new ways to cope with personal and interpersonal concerns and challenges.

Support Groups generally consist of five to ten HCC students meeting face to face with one or two trained therapists for an hour and a half.
