We know as students you are spending the majority of your time balancing your academic, work and family obligations. College students today are faced with many social, emotional, and academic challenges and when experiencing these challenges, it is often difficult to perform academically. It can also impact your health and home life.

 The Student Wellness Program is a partnership between the Contra Costa Community College District and JFK University’s Community Counseling Centers. The Student Wellness Program allows students to receive short-term therapeutic services that address the challenges they experience both in and out of the classroom.

 Services are available throughout the academic year beginning the first week of October, twice a week at the Pittsburg campus and once a week at the Brentwood Center.
