PCC is physically closed to student and public access. During this time we are modifying our services to be able to continue to support you remotely. For collegewide updates, please Read the Latest Coronavirus Updates.


Temporary Change to Personal Counseling Services

During PCC's period of closed campus access, Personal Counseling is offering telehealth services via Zoom and telephone sessions. Students can schedule with one of our clinicians to explore concerns, receive information about coping strategies, and possible referral to community resources. 

To schedule, call and leave a message at (626) 585-7273 or email us (personalcounseling@pasadena.edu)  with your full name, student ID number, and a callback number.  A staff member will email your PCC email address with our office's intake documentation before scheduling an appointment. We will call to schedule your appointment after receiving the intake documents.

Please note that our staff will call you from an unlisted or blocked number. If your phone settings restrict unknown calls, you may have to lift any restrictions temporarily.

Our hours of operation are Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 8 am - 4 pm and Wednesday, 8 am - 7 pm. 

After hours, if you are experiencing a mental health emergency, you can text "COURAGE" to 741741 or call (877) 727-4747.  In the event of a life threatening emergency, dial  9-1-1 or Campus Police (626) 585-7484 or go to the nearest emergency room.

Mental Health Care Package (Coping with COVID-19)


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has been closely monitoring the current outbreak of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). This situation may not only affect your physical well-being but also your mental health and overall, psychological well-being. Individuals may experience a wide range of emotional reactions (i.e., fear, anxiety, worry, sadness, grief, anger, etc.) in response to the COVID-19 outbreak, isolation due to quarantine, and uncertainty about the future. These are normal reactions that many people experience. However, to further promote overall health, it is essential to care for your own physical and mental health needs, especially if you are finding that your thoughts and feelings are beginning to interfere with your daily routine, relationships with others, and outlook for the future. Here are some resources that we hope will help you promote your mental health and psychological well-being during the Coronavirus Outbreak:
