California College of the Arts recognizes mental health and wellness is equally important as physical health and wellness.

Students can access mental-health services directly through the college (including the student health insurance coverage through Kaiser Permanente); or if they prefer, through alternative agencies set up here in the Bay Area, some of which offer free services.

This section offers students information about access to mental-health services, including those offered through the college as well as those outside CCA's puview.

If you have questions about how to access a particular service, or if you did not find the answer to your question in this section, please see contact information below.
