Life Skills Center

The Life Skills Center (LSC) is part of LACC’s mental health services on campus. The mission of the LSC is to provide mental health counseling and related psychological services for LACC students and in-service training for faculty, staff, and students.

Our goal is to enable LACC students to adapt positively to personal, family, and environmental challenges as well as pressures that can interfere with the ability to succeed academically and personally. Learning to master these challenges will enhance a student’s psychological, interpersonal, educational, and career development while at LACC and long after leaving the college.

Why Should Students Talk to One of Our Therapists About Their Problems

Some students have family and friends they trust and feel comfortable talking to. However, those supporters may not have the training or the objectivity to assist or intervene with the student. The highly trained LSC interns can offer a fresh perspective and proven strategies/guidelines for assisting LACC students in achieving their academic and personal goals.

What Kind of Problems Do Students Have?

Problems related to academic concerns, test -anxiety, procrastination, motivation, difficulty in managing feelings, depression, anxiety, anger, hopelessness, or low self-esteem. Students may also express concerns about relationships with family members, girl/boyfriends, marital partners, friends, LGBTQ issues, school mates, or faculty; eating habits, drug or alcohol abuse. Treatment and services may focus on responding to suicide, sexual assault, domestic violence, and community violence when needed.

All communications and discussions are confidential as specified by the state law that regulates the practice of psychotherapy.
