Students can access free mental health resources 24/7 through Togetherall
Nov 29, 2021CCBC students now have access to a powerful mental health support resource available to them at no cost, anytime, and anywhere they have internet connection. A demonstration of CCBC’s ongoing commitment to mental wellness, the Togetherall platform allows any student to sign up to receive and provide immediate support through an online peer-to-peer community. Interactions are anonymous and supervised by licensed mental health practitioners.
Togetherall augments services already provided by CCBC Success Navigators, established several years ago to serve as the first stop for students in need of human services assistance such as clinical counseling for stress, anxiety, depression and other mental health challenges.
“Over the past 18 months, CCBC faculty and administrators have experienced a high volume of late-night phone calls and text messages from students feeling emotionally burdened by the various influences in their personal lives, their communities and around the world,” said Heather Griner, director of College and Community Outreach Services at CCBC. “Now, with Togetherall, those students can express—as well as explore—their fears, struggles, and sources of anxiety to other people who may be dealing with the same hardships. And they can do it in their exact moment of need.”
CCBC’s partnership with Togetherall was made possible in part by Higher Education Emergency Relief Funding from the U.S. federal government, established by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act.
To access the service, CCBC students can go to the mobile-responsive webpage at togetherall.com and register with their academic email address.
