If you need health or psychological services on campus, don’t despair. Help is nearby.

Students enrolled in Fresno City College are eligible for free medical care and psychological counseling on campus.
Located in the first floor of the Student Services building, on the Southwest end of the FCC campus, the Health Center is open from 8 a.m. to 4:45 p.m., Monday to Thursday and 8 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. on Friday.

“We do a lot of helping students find resources that they need for different problems that they are having,” said Lisa Chaney, coordinator of the health services department. “It can be medical, referring them to psych services, or some of the other programs that are on campus.”

Chaney said that the Health Center is a great option for students to turn to when they are not feeling well.

Along with first aid and health promotion, students can consult psych interns — a new service which is available this semester.

“It’s easy for a student to come in and book an appointment with an intern, or set one up ahead of time,” Chaney said.

The interns are available three hours a day, four days a week. Chaney said that students with questions who are unable to make it into the health center can visit their website.

Chaney said the health center and psych services can benefit students by assuring them they are not alone in their 17-week journey to complete the work and be successful.
Students seeking information can go to the FCC website.

The best part, Chaney said, is that the college provides these services free of charge because they are covered by the student health fee.
