Student Health & Well-Being

A successful student maintains his/her personal health and strives to achieve a state of wellness: physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. College can be a very stressful time for many people, full of transition, deadlines, social adjustment, and pressure to succeed. Students commonly find themselves struggling with homesickness, nutrition and diet, high stress, mental health and depression, physical fitness, relationship and sexual health issues, and even social matters that are causing barriers to learning or happiness. There are resources to assist you in all of these areas to provide support, education, and even clinical treatment. Don’t be afraid to ask for help. We are here to listen and to give you options to address these issues.

Students, friends, or family members with concerns about the well-being of a PWSCC student may contact Student Services to request that a staff member check in with the individual to offer support. More significant needs will be referred to off-campus clinical providers for formal counseling and medical care. In the case of an emergency, please call 9-1-1. See the Emergency Procedures section of the Student Handbook for more information.
