In the Course of normal college experiences, many students find it helpful to ask for assistance as they adjust to the demands of college life.

Some students are affected by personal crises, while other students suffer from stress or face other issues. Student Counseling Services at PC meets such needs through a treatment model involving up to six sessions of individual psychotherapy for students at a given time. Under more severe clinical circumstances, students may be referred to community providers and/or long-term care facilities for intensive treatment.

Students may make their own appointment by contacting the Director of Counseling Services in the Health Center. Counseling Services offered at the Health Center are offered free to full-time PC students. Off-campus referrals, acute emergencies, or long-term therapy becomes the financial responsibility of his/her family.

Counseling for chemical abuse or dependency is available through the Gateway Counseling Center. This Center provides round-the-clock care for students 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
