Laney Wellness Center - Mental Health Services

Welcome to Laney College Mental Health Services.  We believe in your power and strength, and we’re here to help you rise to the challenges of college life.  We offer free, short-term individual therapy, referrals for mental health services in the community, and wellness workshops throughout the year.  We provide confidential support around challenges such as depression, anxiety, trauma, family, relationships, grief and loss, and other personal concerns.

We will be offering short-term counseling session via telephone or video, with limited in-person sessions coming soon, for currently enrolled Laney students. Please complete this short Request Form  and we will get back to you within 48 hours.  Thank you!

For a list of mental health resources that are offered in the community, please see Page 11 of the Laney College Resource Guide. For managing stress and anxiety during the pandemic, please see the CDC’s recommendations.

Laney College Wellness Center also partners with JFK University’s Community Counseling Centers. This partnership allows currently enrolled Laney students to receive short-term therapeutic services that address the challenges they experience both in and out of the classroom.

* Therapists are JFK University graduate trainees and interns (supervised by licensed clinicians) committed to helping students realize their full potential and balance academic, work and family obligations.
