Counseling Center Virtual Services

During Fall 2023, the WellCat Counseling Center will be providing services to new and returning students.  We offer individual and group counseling via in-person and Zoom for tele-health mental health assistance to any Chico State student.

If you are in crisis and need to speak to a counselor immediately, please call 530-898-6345 and follow the phone prompts (press 2). You will be connected to a crisis counselor at that time. 

We have a crisis counselor available to you 24/7 for crisis services. 

If you would like to schedule a new or returning appointment, or are interested in group therapy, please call 530-898-6345 and leave a message if we are not available to take your call.  Please leave your name, phone number, and student ID number. One of our team members at WCCC will return your call as soon as possible. Wishing you all a safe and happy Fall 2023 semester!

Diversity Statement

At the WellCat Counseling Center at Chico State, we value diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment that values and respects all members of our campus community. We recognize the unique challenges that our students face based on race, ethnicity, sex, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, age, disability, religion, and socioeconomic status. As a counseling team our goal is to provide equitable mental health services through creating a safe, supportive, culturally sensitive, inclusive, and empowering environment for our students.
