Getting Help

For Myself

  • If you are a student enrolled at CSUMB, you can call us to request services or ask any questions (831) 582-3969.
  • While individual counseling is provided at the PGCC, it is highly recommended that you consider attending group counseling as well to maximize your personal growth.
  • Although there are no assurances to benefits, counseling can often lead to better interpersonal relationships, improved academic performance, solutions to specific problems, and reductions in your feelings of distress.

For someone else

  • If a student is in danger of hurting themselves or others, call 9-1-1.
  • If you are on campus and concerned about a student, encourage them to talk to someone. You can offer to accompany the student to our office. We ask that you call us prior to coming over so we can be ready to meet them.
  • If you are off campus and concerned about a student, express concern to the student, encourage the student to come to the counseling center, and ask that he or she make contact.
