Welcome to
Psychological Services

Dear De Anza College Community, 

Like most other campus offices, the Psychological Services program is currently operating remotely to reduce the risk of coronavirus. While you won't be able to visit us in person, you can still speak with us by phone and other methods. 

We will be offering 25-minute appointments to students, either over the phone or online. If you already have a scheduled appointment for the week of March 16-27, we will contact you with information about your options.

Students who want to schedule a new appointment can reach us by calling 408.864.8868 or emailing dapsychservice@fhda.edu  You’ll need to provide your eight-digit student identification number, also known as a campuswide ID or CWID.

You can also consult our list of other mental health programs and these resource guides from

We know this is a stressful and uncertain time for many. Please take care of yourself, check your email inbox for notices from the college, and watch for updates on the college’s coronavirus information webpage.
