BASICS Program

BASICS is an evidence-based program available to currently enrolled students at any of the three St. Johns River State College campuses (St. Augustine, Orange Park or Palatka). Appointments are held at the college campus or the EPIC Counseling Center (North Campus). This program is free of charge. For more information, please email [email protected] or visit

At BASICS, we talk with students about everything from sleep and stress to finances and friends.

We also understand that asking for help is not an easy thing to do. That’s why BASICS is completely confidential, and we never lecture students on the dangers of alcohol or drugs or even ask for abstinence. Instead, BASICS offers up a judgment-free zone where you can seek the help of professional counselors and simply ask them questions about the stresses in your life.

Seriously, it’s that easy.
