Mental Health Resources

The Counseling Center promotes mental health and wellness for the Pepperdine community. The center provides direct services for students, prevention programming, and consultation when a community member is concerned about someone who is struggling. Counseling Center staff can also facilitate making a connection to local and national mental health resources. 


The counselors at the Counseling Center are professional therapists who create and hold a confidential space for students that stands separate from their academic records at Pepperdine. Students receive care for a variety of issues, from developmental concerns like relationship stress or homesickness to crisis-related concerns, such as sexual assault or trauma. Counselors are available 24/7 when students have an urgent need or are experiencing a mental health emergency.

Students are welcome to receive individual therapy or to participate in process groups, support groups, or drop-in workshops. If medication is being considered, students may meet with the Counseling Center’s psychiatrist to discuss options or receive a prescription.  

The Counseling Center offers a number of self-help resources on its website, including screenings for various mental health topics, a library of videos that will enhance self-care, and information on accessing the premium features of a mental health app.
