About PUC's Mental Health Counseling Program


Clinical counseling services for our students are provided on all of the PUC campuses.

These services are provided as a result of partnerships with multiple colleges and universities throughout the Los Angeles area.

Marriage and Family Therapy interns complete their clinical hours on the PUC campuses under the guidance and supervision of highly qualified, certified PUC staff.

This program provides counseling services to PUC students as needed,  to improve mental health in order to promote higher academic success.

As a result of the success of this program, other charter schools in the Los Angeles community requested that PUC share the program by placing and supervising interns on their campuses also. In the spirit of collaboration and partnership, interns are now shared with several Los Angeles charter school campuses.
