The official ground breaking for the new Student and Community Counseling Center on the campus of Florida Gulf Coast University was held on Tuesday, October 30th. The 27,000 SF facility will be a welcoming addition for students and residents of Southwest Florida. The facility will provide access to mental and behavioral healthcare for underserved populations throughout the community and will be available for those with or without insurance at a nominal fee. The three-story center will feature a community counseling clinic for group counseling, psychoeducational counseling and other mental health services for children, adolescents and families. Working in conjunction with Burt Hill/Pollock Krieg Architects, Chris-Tel Construction will begin construction on the facility later this month and will be completed by the start of the 2019-2020 school year.
