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 Office is staffed by licensed mental health professionals. Psychological Services is open to all currently enrolled Skyline College students and is free of charge. Referral information for longer term counseling is also provided.
The Skyline College Personal Counseling Services is located in Building 2, Room 2206 (next to the Health Center).
