Welcome to Counseling Services! As a CSUSM student you have access to mental health services because it is covered by your pre-paid mental health fee.
If you are feeling like you are not safe, that you might harm yourself or others, call either 911 or the San Diego County Crisis Line (888) 724-7240 immediately.
Students come to counseling services for many reasons:
Our goal is to provide a supportive, confidential setting in which these concerns can be addressed.
In addition to counseling, we offer a variety of services and programs designed to enhance the college experience and promote health and well being. These include:
Consultation to administrative and academic departments, student services and organizations.
A wide range of outreach and education activities, including workshops, guest lectures, special events.
The Internship in Health Service Psychology, a full time psychology internship program for students completing their graduate degrees in clinical or counseling psychology. We are a member of the Association of Psychology Postdoctoral and Internship Centers (APPIC). We are not APA accredited; however, we have applied for initial accreditation with APA and have a site visit scheduled. There's no assurance that we will be accredited with APA. *
