DVC offers a Wellness program with support from The Wright Institute. We are currently offering remote wellness counseling by phone or by Zoom video call. While at home, it you are not able to talk freely, you can chat with a wellness counselor.
Wellness Interns are either graduate students in a master's or doctorate degree program or trainees. Trainees have completed their degree and are gaining required hours for their license.
