Mental Health Services

The Student Health Center offers free confidential counseling services to GWC students. If you have any of these concerns or would like general professional assistance, please come in or call 714-895-8379 for an appointment.

With regard to mental health, the mission of the Student Health Center is to reduce mental health symptoms in order to improve school success in our students.

  • We use brief models of therapy (approximately 8 sessions) designed to achieve short-term goals.
  • Interventions may include Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive-Behavioral approaches, psycho-education, and community referrals.
  • There is a refundable $10 deposit to see a therapist at the Student Health Center.
  • Therapists at the Student Health Center have limited hours. Therefore, students who require more intensive treatments, including 24-hour availability of providers and longer term therapy approaches, will be evaluated and referred to appropriate community providers.
  • Students who do not presently have symptoms, but are interested in careers in psychology, should be referred to academic counselors. The Student Health Center has very limited resources and often has a waiting list. Therefore, use of treatment hours for academic counseling limits our ability to help students who are in need of psychotherapy.
