Mental Health Resources
Everyone needs support at different times of their lives. Sometimes it’s a traumatic event, mounting bills, job loss, college classes, or the overall stress from life that may make it difficult to cope. While navigating life challenges, remember that help is available.
Chesapeake College has joined forces with For All Seasons Inc. to offer support and therapy for our students (on any 'Peake campus) via telehealth or in-person on the Wye Mills campus.
A licensed therapist can assist you with a variety of issues, including but not limited to: depression, anxiety, trauma, substance use, grief, peer relationship challenges, major life transitions, ADHD, bipolar disorder, and low self-esteem. For All Seasons accepts all insurances and offers special programs for students who have a financial need.
Remember, you are not alone. We are here to help.

Students are expected to behave in a way that is conscious of the rights and safety of others and the community. A healthy college community is defined by students who are aware of the importance of maintaining a respectful and diverse academic environment. It is the mission of Chesapeake College to establish and maintain an environment in which all members of the college community can work or participate in college education programs and activities free from all forms of sexual misconduct. Sexual misconduct is a form of sex discrimination prohibited by Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972. Sexual misconduct in any form will not be tolerated by the College.
“Sexual misconduct” is an umbrella term that encompasses various types of prohibited conduct, including sexual harassment, sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking. Sexual harassment includes both verbal and nonverbal behaviors aimed to objectify someone because of their gender, to provide favorable treatment in exchange for sexual activities, or
to display unwanted sexual advances (NASEM, 2018). Sexual harassment can lead to hostile work and learning environments, victims having to change their behavior to protect themselves, and, overall, contributes to a lack of safety
(Maryland Coalition Against Sexual Assault, 2021). For additional information about sexual harassment, visit www.mcasa.org.
