Commitment to Diversity

Amidst the current political times, the Vanderbilt University PCC affirms its commitment to diversity and inclusion and strives to create a safe and accessible environment for all students. We recognize the impact that recent policy changes may have on many members of our campus community. As a counseling center, we are fully aware our mission gets strengthened and enriched by the cultural and intellectual diversity of our students.

Please note: As a result of VUMC’s transition to a new electronic medical record system (Epic), the PCC has been experiencing some inconsistency with receiving students’ MHAV messages. If you have not received a response from your clinician within 48 business hours, please contact the MHAV help desk, and call the PCC at (615) 322-2571 to speak directly to your clinician. 

Statement of Services

Vanderbilt University is committed to supporting short-term and time-effective therapy focused on student mental health and wellbeing in a network of care that includes the Center for Student Wellbeing, the Psychological and Counseling Center, the Student Health Center, and community providers. If PCC services are appropriate, we determine the frequency and duration of counseling sessions based on an assessment of student need for services. Your provider will review your plan of care which may include additional PCC treatment, PCC group therapy options, referral to an external provider or treatment program, or collaboration with campus partners.
