This service provides assistance to students struggling with stress or troubling personal problems. Real life problems such as work stressors, financial concerns, illness, family pressures, loneliness and relationship issues can be distracting, making it difficult to concentrate on academic work.
Our goal is to assist you with brief personal counseling to deal with the life challenges that can hinder your academic progress. Brief therapy takes into account the uniqueness of each student’s cultural, ethnic, and personal experience.

Student Health counseling services are not meant to be long-term. Community referrals must be made in the event longer term interventions are required. 

Good things to know....  

  • Appointments are usually 45-50 minutes in length.
  • Students are asked to complete an intake packet (completed packet
    must be brought to first appointment)
    Students arriving more than 15 minutes late for an appointment will be
    re-scheduled.
  • "Walk-in" times offer 15 minutes of focused, brief intervention.
  • Please call if you need to re-schedule an appointment so we can offer
    the hour to someone else.
  • Two consecutive "no-shows" will result in the student being directed to
    the "walk-in" times. 

All students and employees will be required to show a photo ID (driver's license, state issued ID, Passport, Matricula Consular card, etc.) prior to receiving services. 
 
Student Health & Wellness services are available to Shasta College students who have paid the semester health fee and are registered at the time of service in credit-bearing courses for the current semester. Enrollment is verified with each visit.
 
Please call the Student Health & Wellness office at (530) 242-7580 to schedule an appointment.
