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. Please visit the Student Services' websites to learn how to access their services remotely. For collegewide updates, please Read the Latest Coronavirus Updates.

Temporary Change to Personal Counseling Services

During PCC's period of closed campus access, we will be providing telephone triage services, which are brief appointments with one of our clinicians to explore concerns, receive information about coping strategies, and possible referral to community resources.  You may schedule an appointment by call our main line at (626) 585-7273 or via email (personalcounseling@pasadena.edu) and leave a message with your full name, student ID number, and a call back number.  A staff member will call you back to schedule an appointment.  Please note that you will be called from an unlisted or block number, and so you may have to temporarily lift any restrictions you have on receiving those types of calls to your call back number.

Our modified hours of operation are Monday-Friday from 8 am - 4 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)

COVID-19 UPDATES

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:
