ATTENTION NEW STUDENTS
All new students are required to view "NOT ANYMORE." This video-based program will increase awareness and provide critical information on sexual assault, dating violence, stalking and bystander intervention. View the video online.

MENTAL HEALTH & CRISIS COUNSELING SERVICES AT PVCC
PVCC provides services to support your emotional health and well-being and has trained staff and resources that can help you if you are experiencing mental health concerns. We encourage you to seek help if you are experiencing depression, sadness, anxiety, stress, substance abuse issues, or having trouble making the transition to college. PVCC offers counseling services for students experiencing a crisis on campus; PVCC does not directly offer mental health services in-house. 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. College counselors and the dean of student services will help set up this appointment at no cost to the student.
