Welcome to Health Services!
Health & Psychological Services at Norco College strives to engage students in making informed decisions about their health and well-being. Health and wellness strongly correlate with academic success. Missing class due to physical or mental illness could significantly impact your academic performance and, in most cases, can be prevented. Student Health & Psychological Services are available to students currently enrolled in a minimum of one credit and who have paid the Student Health Fee. Please note, students under the age of 18 must have a
minor consent form on file prior to treatment. For a full list of services and resources, download our handbook.

May is MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS MONTH
Norco College along with Riverside University Health System-Behavior Health will conduct in student outreach to raise awareness and reduce stigma about mental health as part of Norco College's month-long observance of May is Mental Health Month. This national awareness campaign began in 1949 to promote a greater understanding of mental health and to support the welness and recovery of those living with mental illness.
Unfortunately, due to this year's observance of COVID-19 Safer at Home directives we were not able to hold our yearly Health Fair, we have developed a weekly series of webinar presentations to help our students be engaged in promoting mental health awareness this month.
