BetterMynd – Online Mental Health Counseling

York County Community College has recently partnered with BetterMynd to offer our students access to online therapy sessions with their diverse network of licensed mental health counselors.

At YCCC, we believe in developing and supporting the success of our students on both a personal and academic level, and we know that this all starts with your mental health and wellness.

Through our partnership with BetterMynd, any YCCC student can now access free online therapy sessions. These live video-sessions are private and confidential, and can take place from the convenience of your laptop or smartphone.
