Feeling depressed? Having anxiety or sleeping problems? If yes, you might want to visit our Psychological Counseling Center (PCC).
The PCC is located in the Student Health Center building next to the Santos Manuel Student Union (SMSU). The entrance is on the north-west side.
Their goal is to provide professional counseling services to all students on campus.
The PCC is funded by the student health fee, included in our enrollment, so there is no additional cost for their services. You already pay for it!
They offer different types of counseling from private to couple’s counseling.
Counseling at the PCC offers a safe, confidential environment where students can share thoughts, feelings, explore concerns, gain awareness and make appropriate changes to their lifestyles.
Many students have expressed that the center has helped them deal with difficult situations.
Counseling is completely confidential, so no one can be notified that the student patient uses the service including professors, deans or parents.
Students may attend one or more sessions with professional counselors as many times as they want.
Anyone can make an appointment by visiting the center or contacting them by phone.
Their weekly hours are Monday and Thursday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday and Wednesday 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Friday 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and closed from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. everyday.
The PCC also offers group counseling sessions that meet on a regular basis, so that students can interact with others.
Group days and times are determined accordingly and require pre-registration.
If students find that they feel more comfortable participating in group sessions they may contact PCC to set up and appointment.
They also offer wellness workshops that are beneficial to students in various aspects of their life such as tips for healthy dating, how to be a better friend, how to overcome ADHD and even more.
Workshop schedules and locations are available on the PCC website.
