Student Health and Wellness

North Orange Continuing Education (NOCE) supports students on their journey to enhance their overall well-being through mental health resource assistance.

NOCE counselors can talk about basic personal issues affecting a student’s educational progress. NOCE counseling is not the same as seeking personal counseling for mental or emotional health problems. However, referrals for these types of services can be provided to students. Contact us for more information!

We are committed to welcoming students of diverse backgrounds and identities, including – but not limited to – age, ethnicity, faith, gender, citizenship or immigration status, level of academic standing, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic status.
