MVC believes that the well-being of students extends beyond the classroom.

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.

Free Mental Health 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 wellness@mvc.edu to get started. All counseling is kept highly confidential.

 

Why therapy?

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.
