With the start of each term and the added pressure of class schedules, fees, and books, many students may experience increased levels of stress. Some students may feel particularly vulnerable during this time and experience severe anxiety and/or depression. Students who need support services can contact the Student Health Center for free personal counseling services by dialing (626) 914-8671 to schedule an appointment or simply stop by the office on the first floor of the Student Services building.

A Student Guide to Free and Low-Cost Resources for Citrus College Students is also available by clicking on the link. Please feel free to share this resource with others. Other resources include:
