Mental Health Services

Overview

Mental Health Services

Mental Health Services (MHS) is committed to promoting student mental health and wellbeing and strives to help students achieve their academic, professional, and personal goals. We strive to be a positive advocate of engagement and transformation to help our diverse student community meet their personal challenges while increasing student retention and success.

As members of the MHS staff, we consistently strive to integrate multiculturalism into the everyday function and structure of our department. We have a great appreciation for the dignity and worth of each person we encounter. In our work, we advocate a philosophy of acceptance, compassion, and support for those we serve and provide an emotionally safe and respectful environment.

We support all students regardless of their background and hope to provide services that foster the development of behaviors necessary for success at Long Beach City College and beyond.
