For other mental health emergency assistance, call the Anne Arundel County Crisis Response Warmline at 410-768-5522 or the Maryland Crisis Hotline at 800-422-0009, 7 days a week/24 hours a day.
IN CASE OF A NON-EMERGENCY: If you want to make an appointment or speak with an AACC personal counselor, please call 410-777-7111.
Although your college years can be your best years, they can also be very stressful and challenging, both academically and personally. AACC’s counselors are Master’s-level, Maryland-licensed, clinical counselors and are available to talk with you about your issues and concerns, to discuss options and available resources, and to develop plans to help you succeed with your academic goals.
Personal Counseling Services focuses on specific concerns you have that may lead to academic difficulties and:
- Provide time-limited services, a maximum of three visits per issue.
- Refer students to other resources in the College or in the community. This decision is made on a case-by-case basis and is determined by a variety of factors including, but not limited to, issues requiring more time to be addressed than the office allows, the expertise of staff addressing the problem, and the availability of staff and other resources.
- Provide services without charge to students currently enrolled at Anne Arundel Community College.
Personal Counseling Services is located on the second floor of the Arnold campus Student Services Center Building. Appointments at Glen Burnie Town Center and Arundel Mills are available upon request. HOURS OF OPERATION
- Monday - Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
To schedule an appointment with a counselor or for more information, call Counseling, Advising and Retention Services (CARS) at 410-777-7111, or stop by CARS’ offices.
