Trailblazer Assistance Network (TAN)--Offers help for personal, professional, or school concerns by providing free, confidential, short-term counseling and personal consultation. Additionally, it provides student-life resources for such issues as legal and financial consultation, online learning, and resources.

Confidentiality is one of the most important features of TAN. No one will know that you have used this resource unless you offer that information or unless someone’s safety is threatened.

There is no cost to you for your phone calls or virtual, telephonic, or face-to-face visits with the TAN. A-B Tech covers all expenses for this program.

To seek assistance through TAN, simply call (704) 529-1428 or (800) 633-3353 and it's available 24/7. Services available through McLaughlin Young Group. This is an additional resource for on-campus counseling.
