Eligibility

All current active students of Clovis Community College (and any community college within the State Center Community College District) are eligible for clinical services. In the event that a student drops their coursework, services may be terminated and appropriate referrals will be offered.

Students may seek Psychological Services for various reasons. The following are some common student concerns: adjustment to college, anxiety, depression, relationship and family issues, personal growth and exploration, grief and loss, stress and anger management, and questions regarding sexual orientation or gender identity.

Intake (Triage) Process

During the initial intake/triage session, students are informed of SCCCD Psychological Services policies as well as their rights as a client, the limits of confidentiality, and other information pertinent to clinical settings. The best treatment referral options for the student are determined by the therapist during this session, which may include a referral for therapy outside the clinic with a community-based therapist or other resources.

Once students have completed their intake with Psychological Services staff, the therapist will let the student know what treatment is recommended. Students may be asked to pursue any of the following options:

  • Online individual therapy through Psychological Services at SCCCD
  • Online group therapy through Psychological Services at SCCCD
  • Assessment through Psychological Services at SCCCD

If the therapist determines that the most comprehensive treatment for the student cannot be best addressed by SCCCD Psychological Services, the student may be referred to:

  • Free individual therapy through the Gary W. Cannon Psychological Services Center, operated by the California School of Professional Psychology at Fresno's Alliant University: PSC Website
  • Our list of community resources, which include psychiatric services, psychotherapy services, crisis hotlines, and other community clinics/services.

If you are a student with concerns about another student, please review the Crisis do's and don'ts for Students for assistance.

If you are a current or previous client of Psychological Services at any SCCCD campus, we invite you to fill out our survey: Satisfaction Survey.
