Sometimes, we can feel overwhelmed with the demands of being a student and responsibilities outside of school. The Wellness Center is the safe space on campus where you can explore those struggles and see how you can feel more balanced.
To provide mental health and wellness services that support the well-being, academic, and social-emotional growth of students; and to educate the campus community about mental health and wellness.

The Wellness Center provides free and confidential short-term counseling services to students currently enrolled at Honolulu Community College (HonCC). Participation is completely voluntary. Counseling and consultation services are strength-based and solution-focused to help students manage personal life issues and navigate their college experience.
Services begin with an initial consultation to assess needs and complete paperwork. These consultation sessions are typically 30-45 minutes in length and will help determine the best way to support you and next steps. A student whose needs exceed the scope of HonCC Wellness Center’s services will be referred to community resources or providers.
Student services include:
- Supportive short-term counseling
- Crisis counseling
- Personal Wellness Screenings
- Referrals to campus and community agencies
- Workshops or presentations to student groups
- Title IX Confidential Space
Outreach services include:
- Consultation with faculty, staff and administrators
- Tabling Events on Campus
- Classroom Presentations
- Educational programming occurs when time and staffing resources permit
