Bladen Community College has partnered with McLaughlin Young to provide enrolled students access to a Student Assistance Program (SAP) and Work-Life Services. At BCC, we refer to these resources as Student Outreach Services or SOS, for short. SOS is a college-sponsored benefit that offers the support and resources you need to address personal or school-related challenges and concerns. The services are confidential and provided at no cost to you and your household family members. Assistance is available 24 hours per day / 7 days per week / 365 days per year 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; therefore, not all issues will be resolved within the SAP model and may need to be referred to other resources.
