Need Counseling?


What is PCAP?

The Personal Counseling Assistance Program (PCAP) is a free and confidential service provided to CPCC students who are facing challenging times.  The student and the Counselor work together to discover solutions for problems and create strategies for successfully  meeting goals.  When a student can benefit from the services of other professionals, Counselors will provide appropriate referrals.

Frequent reasons students seek personal counseling include:

  • Stress and worry
  • Feeling depressed
  • Struggles in personal relationships
  • Parenting issues
  • Low self-confidence or self-esteem
  • Test-taking anxiety
  • Grief
  • Unclear Goals
  • Substance abuse
  • Low motivation
  • Experiencing a crisis


How do I obtain assistance through P-CAP?

Counselors are available during CPCC’s standard operating hours. You may drop by the Counseling and Advising Services reception desk at your nearest campus to make an appointment or phone 704-330-6433. Please specify that you want an appointment for personal counseling.

In emergency situations, whenever possible, students will be seen without an appointment.

After hours, or if you are off campus, please phone 911 for emergency situations.
