OUR MISSION

The mission of the MHCC is to help students benefit fully from the college experience by supporting personal, social, and emotional well-being.

Services Offered include confidential and culturally sensitive counseling and referrals for:

  • Individuals
  • Couples
  • Groups

Vision

Our vision is to have a campus with reduced stigma associated with mental illness that offers a welcoming environment in which to promote mental wellness.

Values

  • Dignity
  • Respect
  • Professionalism
  • Cultural Competence

College students often experience stressors while trying to balance the demands of their academic and personal lives. Without help, stress and problems can intensify, impacting personal wellness and academic success.

Our goal at the San Diego City College Mental Health Counseling Center is to help students benefit fully from the college experience by supporting personal, social, and emotional well-being. Our confidential and culturally sensitive services include short-term individual, couples and group counseling, crisis intervention, and outreach/prevention. We also provide consultation and referral services to students, staff, and faculty.
