Welcome to BHCS!

We are Here for You!

Our team of Behavioral Health Counselors is available to provide confidential, culturally-informed mental health counseling services for Palomar College students Monday through Friday.  These services are FREE for registered Palomar College students as part of the student health fee each semester.

To schedule an appointment, please give us a call at 760-891-7531 and our administrative staff will assist you with scheduling an appointment. You may be asked to leave a voicemail and one of our team members will call you back as soon as possible.  You can also stop by NB-2 on the San Marcos campus to schedule an appointment in person.

Our goal is to help students benefit fully from the college experience by supporting their personal, social and emotional well-being.

It's Up to Us:

It’s Up to Us is about helping San Diegans talk openly about mental health, recognize signs of challenges, find local resources, and seek help. By raising awareness and highlighting local resources we aim to inspire wellness, reduce stigma, and prevent suicide.
