How does it work?

The toll-free helpline is answered by an experienced mental health care professional. After you describe your concerns, you will be given the names and phone numbers of local counselors or other professionals who can best meet your needs. SPC's partnership with BayCare’s Student Assistance Program provides SPC students with three free visits per academic year. If you need additional services, your counselor will coordinate with your insurance provider. If you don't have insurance, they will work with you for a reduced cost.
