All students have access to Health & Wellness Services. We provide health care, personal counseling services, health & wellness education and referrals to off campus resources.

We commit to advancing health equity; so every person has the opportunity to attain their full health potential: physically, emotionally, socially, mentally and academically.

The Health Center is open on a drop-in basis to advise students regarding acute or chronic illnesses and injuries. We evaluate symptoms, refer if necessary, to local community clinics or doctors, and provide first aid for injuries or accidents.
Other services include but are not limited to immunizations, tuberculosis testing, blood work, pregnancy testing, birth control prescriptions, emergency contraception (Plan B), testing for sexually transmitted infections, nutrition counseling, stress reduction information, crisis intervention and blood pressure evaluation.

Personal counseling offers brief confidential individual counseling, crisis intervention, mental health and substance abuse assessments, and community referrals.
The goal of counseling is to support students in identifying and managing personal concerns, learn more about themselves and make positive life changes. Talking about issues and concerns in a safe and confidential environment can enable students to become more successful in college and life. Benefits of counseling include relief from distressing symptoms; improved emotional health; the acquisition of new approaches to problem solving and decision making; more satisfying interpersonal relationships; and increased insight and understanding of thoughts, feelings and behaviors.
The Personal Counseling is staffed by licensed mental health professionals. We are open to all currently enrolled Skyline College students and is free of charge. Drop-in counselling is available without an appointment Monday through Thursday from 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. Referral information for longer term counseling is also provided.
Personal Counseling Services are located in Building 2, Room 2206 (near the Health Center.) Check skylinecollege.edu/healthandwellness/personalcounseling.php for hours of operation. Personal Counseling Services is closed on weekends. Please drop in or call the Center at 650-738-4270 to make an appointment.
