Mental Health

Sonoma State University Student Health Center (SHC) is dedicated to helping students with the challenges they face during their time at Sonoma State University. The SHC behavioral health services are offered by staff physicians and nurse practitioners. At your initial SHC visit the provider will listen to your concerns and challenges you are experiencing and identify your strengths. 

At the SHC we offer assessment and support through transitional behavior health clinic visits in an effort to identify and help you decide what services best address your needs. Everyone is an individual with unique challenges, so services that best suit you may be a combination of therapies such as counseling services offered on campus (CAPS), self-help coping skills, peer support, wellness activities and care offered by local community providers.

Additionally, medication can sometimes help suffering, improve functioning and be beneficial in combination with other wellness activities.  You and your provider will work together to determine if medication may be helpful in your situation.

To make an appointment call us at (707) 664-2921, Monday through Thursday 8am-5pm, and Friday 9:30am-5pm, excluding campus holidays and closures.

If you need immediate help after hours, call the 24 hour crisis line at (855) 587-6373, the national suicide prevention hot line at (800) 273-8255 or your outside provider. If you or someone you know is in immediate physical danger, please call 911 or proceed to the nearest emergency room.
