Two months after eliminating mental health counseling on campus, causing confusion and concern among students, Pennsylvania’s largest community college announced Thursday it had contracted with a Harrisburg-area firm to fill the gap.
HACC, Central Pennsylvania’s Community College, said in a statement that its one-year agreement with Mazzitti & Sullivan Counseling Services Inc. will provide students counseling in person, by phone, or by video. As part of the agreement, HACC will pay for students to receive up to three sessions per semester, but will not provide space on any of its five campuses for students to meet the counselors.
