Crisis Counseling Resources


Crisis counseling services available from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Thursday, and from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday in the Admissions and Advising Office. No appointment is needed. Call 434.961.6581 or come to the office and ask for the crisis counselor on duty. All crisis counseling sessions are free and confidential. (Staff and faculty may call ext. 7777 on campus to be connected to the crisis counselor on duty.)

Veterans counseling services: If you are a veteran who is struggling with mental health or other emotional issues please contact PVCC's Military and Veterans Advisor, Jackie Fisher, at 434.961.5282.  She will meet with you to discuss both PVCC and outside resources as needed.

On-campus referrals: PVCC does not offer mental health services. However, PVCC has a partnership with Region Ten Emergency Services that allows our students to be seen by a Region Ten counselor within 24 hours or as an emergency. In case of a mental health crisis, college counselors and the dean of student services will help set up this appointment at no cost to the student.


Should you experience a mental health crisis off campus outside of normal college business hours, please call Region Ten Emergency Services at  434.972.1800  or call 911.
