School can be difficult. Getting counseling shouldn’t be.
In-Person Mental Health Services
Starting January 20, Richland is teaming with Crossing Healthcare to deliver free in-person counseling with a licensed professional, Malinda Powell, ALMFT. Funding will be provided by The Community Foundation of Macon County so we can provide this service at no cost to Richland Community College students, staff, and faculty.
Malinda is an Associate Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (ALMFT) at Crossing Healthcare where she has spent the last several years working with individuals, couples, and families to provide solution-focused mental health care that works in their everyday lives with the goal of enhancing their wellbeing. Malinda can provide resources and assistance to those students, staff and faculty experiencing symptoms associated with depression, anxiety, and trauma histories.
Hours: Monday and Thursday – 9am to 1pm. Appointments are recommended but walk-ins will be available.
Location will be on Richland’s campus at the Macon County Soil and Water Conservation Building, 4004 E. College Park, Decatur, IL 62521
