About Us

Cal Poly Health and Counseling Services, located next to the Rec Center, provides care by appointment and on a walk-in basis to students. In addition to ambulatory care, we offer lab testing, on-site x-rays, prescription medications, and counseling services. Five board-certified physicians, four nurse practitioners and five physician assistants provide care year round. Our staff of 11 mental health professionals and three post-doctoral fellows work with individuals and couples and offer group, couples, and individual counseling sessions. Counseling Services also offers workshops and trainings to the campus community on mental health topics.
