NCC Online: Mental Health & Diminishing Resources
This installment of NCC Online focuses on the current state of mental health services at community colleges and explores strategies for supporting students with student affairs and health education practitioners. As open access institutions, community colleges must be able to serve a wide range of students and provide support for their success, both academically and personally. Join us as we discuss strategies to do so, even amid budget cuts and uncertain funding.
One of the students that I mentor graduated this past May and entered a graduate program this fall. We had a brief conversation about transitioning from an undergraduate student to a graduate student and embarking on the journey to become a student affairs professional. During our conversation, she mentioned her uncertainty, or fear I should say, of feeling like everyone would think she was a fake and not having any knowledge of what she would be doing.
The Perfect Fit – How did I get here?
Six months ago, I started a new adventure into full-time business ownership. The first two, I spent thoughtfully contemplating who I am, who I am not and what I want for this next stage in my career. For as confident as I was about the decision to leave my full-time position in higher education and career development, I was afraid of the change that needed to be made. So how did I get here?

When Does Comparing Become Confining
So when do you celebrate your accomplishments? Now. You start right now. You look back on everything you’ve done and reward yourself. You look at the students whose lives were changed because of you and celebrate that. You think back to all the people that changed your life for the better and thank them.
