Counseling Office

Personal Counseling is designed to serve Merced College (MC) students who are experiencing stress or other emotional difficulties. Frequently, these difficulties affect a student’s academic performance or their ability to function effectively in social, academic, or work settings. To assist students in overcoming these challenges, we offer therapy free of charge to MC students that are enrolled in credit courses.
