Real People, Real Support
We offer different packages based on
your college’s needs, budget considerations, and population.
South Coast Community Services can provide mental health services on your campus designed to work with medical centers, faculty, on campus counselors and police/safety teams, as well as to provide group and individual counseling or education to students. Our College Wrap program provides in-person services on campus or over zoom, and our team has extensive experience with Tier 3 mental health needs (high suicide risk, psychotic breaks), in addition to Tiers 1 and 2.
Coordinating with Campus Police & Safety Teams
One of the best ways to improve the mental health of your student body overall is to provide comprehensive services, which can also mean coordinating with police officials and safety teams who respond during emergency situations or crises. We’ll work to ensure that campus police officers are trained and prepared to identify mental health-related issues so that students in need are treated with care instead of force. In addition, we’ll coordinate with safety teams and volunteers to ensure that students on your campus have access to the mental health services they need most when they need them.
Training For Professors and Staff
Professors, teachers, and other student-facing staff tend to have the most insight into the student body. As part of the College Wrap program, South Coast Community Services offers training for professors and staff to ensure that they can spot any mental health warning signs as well as offer help effectively and compassionately to students in need. In addition, we’re here to help these professionals with any mental health services they need, as well.
College Wrap offers Individual Counseling tailored to fit your current needs to inspire change and improve your quality of life. We offer individual, family, and couples sessions with a registered therapist.
Group Support Services
College Wrap offers 6-week group support services with specialized and specific topics to help you overcome and succeed.
College Wrap offers presentations on topics such as decreasing test-taking anxiety, suicide awareness, getting organized, parenting, and many more!

During Higher Education
College students tend to use drugs and alcohol at a higher rate than young adults of the same age who don’t attend higher education schools. A recent study from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health indicated that more than half of full-time college students ages 18-22 drank alcohol in the past month. Another survey performed by Monitoring the Future revealed that nearly 45% of college students have used an illicit drug.
It’s understandable that college students who are under a lot of pressure from school and their peers, are often led to engage in risky behaviors like substance abuse. While the benefits young adults gain from attending higher education schools are great, it is important to understand the impact alcohol and drug use has on a college student’s experience. Every year, students struggle with the physical and mental side effects that substance abuse can cause.
This guide covers which substances pose the greatest risks to young adults, the potential consequences of being caught, and how to work toward recovery. If you’re a student struggling with substance abuse, you can get help, even while you attend school! Contact our team today to learn about how you can overcome addiction and get the help you need.
