Our mission is to promote personal health and overall wellness by providing students with support and resources that enhance their academic experience and that equip them to be proactive in obtaining their goals academically, professionally, and psychologically.
How We Help
Many college students enrolled at PCC face academic pressures, financial struggles, family difficulties, and other personal issues or mental health challenges. College students need options and counseling support. Enrolled students can be seen by one of our Counselors. Contact with a counselor may be made in person, via email, or by phone. Counselors are available to assist students in need of brief solution-focused counseling. We also work in conjunction with community agencies for additional counseling services when extensive therapeutic care is needed. Student confidentiality is important to us and is protected except in circumstances explained in an established counseling session.
Counselors use a brief, solution-focused model of counseling. Some problems may be resolved in 1-3 sessions. We do not offer therapy or psychiatric services. Students needing these services will be referred to other professionals or agencies off-campus.
Counselors also assist students experiencing a financial struggle by referring them to on and/or off-campus resources that may be able to help. This includes students with food insecurities. If you are in need of food items, please contact one of our counselors for help.
