Mission

To support and engage students around emotional, physical, and spiritual health.

Counseling and Wellness 

To make an appointment for on-campus counseling or get assistance with finding an off-campus provider, please email our counseling staff at wellness@pmc.edu.

All counseling sessions are strictly confidential unless you provide written consent or may be of danger to yourself and/or others. Counseling sessions do not become part of a student's record. Any counseling information used in statistics or research will guarantee the anonymity of the student.

Campus counseling can provide students with:

  • Support for personal, family, social, and academic stressors.
  • Skill building around academic and emotional wellness.
  • Educational information on various topics related to adjusting to college, managing stress, building healthy relationship and so much more!

An emergency room co-payment can be $100.00 or more. You are responsible for all co-payments, including co-payments for ambulance service.

If you require medical attention outside of the hours of the urgent care center, students are advised to go to the Emergency Room at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.

If you have an emergency that is not life threatening but requires an Emergency Room you should look for safe transportation independent of the college. If transportation is not available, call Campus Safety at 617-731-7777 for assistance and they can connect you with the Student Affairs Administrator on-call to arrange a ride share (e.g., Uber or Lyft). The cost of the ride share will be added to your student account.
