Mental Health and Mindfulness
We promote a mindful campus
Mental health encompasses our social, emotional and psychological well-being. Strong mental health is important at every stage of life, as it determines how we handle stress, make choices and relate to those around us.
Therapy and Counseling
Free mental health counseling is available to students by appointment.
Meet with licensed marriage and family therapists for one-on-one sessions Monday through Friday. Our team of therapist CAN listen and CAN help you to maintain a healthy balance of life, family, school and relationships.
Call (951) 571-6103 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to get started. All counseling is kept highly confidential.
Therapy can be for everyone, whether you believe your problems are big or small.
Therapy and counseling can help you learn to manage academic stress, test anxiety, thoughts of self-harm or suicide, relationship challenges, trouble sleeping, agitation/anger, sexual identity and orientation, depression/anxiety, substance abuse, eating disorders, domestic violence, emotional crisis, rape, and difficulty adjusting to major life changes.

Recurring weekly wellness activities are available to help you learn tips and strategies to build healthy relationships, decrease stress, succeed in college, eat healthy and more.

You Can Help Prevent Suicide
Every life matters. You can help prevent suicide by educating yourself about the warning signs of suicide and by sharing valuable resources with your community. Sometimes all it takes to start someone on their journey to recovery is a listening ear. Plus, resources are available to anyone in need of assistance.
Student Health and Psychological Services offers comprehensive preventative health, mental health, and referral assistance. If you have questions, reach out to us. For immediate emergencies, contact 911 or RCCD police.
