“The Southern California Counseling Center changed my life.”
Tanya* is no stranger to gun violence. She was referred to The Abuse Prevention Program (TAPP) at SCCC following her involvement in a shootout. Several months into the program, she discovered that inappropriate photos of herself had been posted online. Enraged, she grabbed a gun and sped off towards confrontation.
Moments before making a tragic decision, she remembered the tools she learned in TAPP. Tanya identified her emotions, channeled her strength and put the gun down.
Our independence relies on you.
We believe that mental health care is a right, not a privilege. That’s why we do what few counseling centers can: provide unlimited access to counseling on a sliding scale basis.
Our volunteer model allows us to operate solely on client fees, foundation grants and support from donors like you. We are completely independent of government funding and insurance payments, so there is no agency or insurance company prescribing care, limiting sessions or creating paperwork.
Client fees do not cover our operating expenses. We count on individual donors and foundations to close the gap. We cannot do this without your support. Help close the funding gap and change a life.
