What We Do

 

Student Health and Wellness at Porterville College supports students demonstrating social, emotional, and/or behavioral concerns impacting their ability to fully participate in daily instruction, social activities, or their overall educational experience. Student Health and Wellness is a resource for students to meet and discuss important issues in a confidential setting. We offer services specializing in individual counseling, in-person or remotely, so you can meet in the comfort of your own home. We’re here to support you as you deal with the complexities of college. A Wellness Counselor is available to meet with students via walk-in and/or appointments. Visit the Wellness Counselor located in Student Services. Please call 559-791-2329 to schedule your appointment today.
