LATTC want to provide some resources to all students who might express or display any concerning statements or behaviors to staff or peers online, over the phone, etc. This information below can be passed onto any student if they are in need of support of resources.”

Personal Assistance and Support Program (PASP)
“Need to speak with someone?”,
“Are you feeling anxious, depressed, or facing surmounting challenges in your personal and academic life?”
The Personal Support Assistance Providers (PSAP) on campus help students with a wide range of things from anxiety, depression, stress, homelessness, food insecurity, relationship problems, and much more!
You can request to meet with one of our PSAP; Meet with a PSAP and Get Help
- A quick survey has to be filled out, but it should take no longer than 2 or 3 minutes.
- A PSAP will then reach out to the student upon receiving their request, to schedule a time that is best.
