Referral Services

Are you having a bad day or just need someone to talk to? Pueblo Community College (PCC) cares about students and offers an approach to their mental and emotional needs through community partnerships we have developed over the years. The Pueblo campus offers referral services that will address issues by utilizing community advocates like Health Solutions and the Health Clinic. These services take a holistic approach to care. Services are available for students in need of a referral, or if they just need a moment to vent. PCC believes in solutions to life’s most difficult concerns and this is why the College will work to connect students with the professional care they deserve.
