Case Management promotes student success and retention, reduces risk, and enhances overall community well-being and safety by identifying needs, removing barriers, leveraging resources, and fostering self-efficacy for students.
Labette Community College has a full-time non-clinical Case Manager/Advisor available to work with students to coordinate prevention, intervention, and support efforts for students facing crises, life traumas, and other barriers to success. The case manager does not provide mental health diagnosis or treatment. The Case Manager/Advisor is located in the Student Success Center, room L107A. Students can call (620) 421-6700, extension 1254 to make an appointment with the Case Manager/Advisor or walk in anytime during regular college business hours.
For students that need or want more intensive support in a clinical setting, Labette Community College has teamed with Labette Center for Mental Health to assist current students. The college will pay for three sessions with the Labette Center for Mental Health if the student does not have medical insurance. Students who wish to access this benefit can contact either the Vice President of Student Affairs or the Case Manager/Advisor, who will help with the process to refer the student to the Labette Center for Mental Health.
If you or someone you know needs immediate mental health assistance call the National Suicide and Crisis Lifeline at 988 – 7 days a week, 24 hours a day to speak with a trained crisis counselor.
