Student Assistance Program

The Student Assistance Program (SAP) is a college-sponsored benefit that offers support and resources to address personal or school-related challenges and concerns.  It’s confidential and free to SPCC students and their household family members.  Help is available 24/7/365 at 800-633-3353.

Assessment and Counseling

Reasons to use the SAP include marital difficulties, parenting, stress, depression, school or work-related concerns, alcohol and drug use/abuse, grief and loss, or preventative.  When students and family members call the SAP, they are offered a face-to-face, telephonic, or virtual counseling session in which a thorough assessment can be conducted by a licensed, experienced clinician in their area.  SAP is short-term, solution-focused therapy, so not all issues will be resolved within the SAP model and may need to be referred to other resources.
