Mental Health Matters

According to national data from the Healthy Minds Study, student mental health concerns have escalated over the last 10 years. As issues become more complex it is essential that we as a Community College provide adequate resources for our students. At PVCC we provide support and resources needed to address the growing mental health concerns.
