DCC Wellness Center


School wellness centers are a powerful investment in the health and academic potential of children and adolescents. They provide access to caring adults and services such as primary care, counseling, mentoring, and peer-to-peer support. School wellness centers support teachers by assisting children and adolescents to thrive in the classroom and beyond! School wellness centers provide access to free health care, behavioral health services, and positive youth activities in a location that is fun, safe, and convenient – at school.


What is the DCC? 
The Diablo Community Center (DCC) is a safe space  that seeks to support the academic, emotional and social well-being of students and their families. The DCC strives to achieve this through providing access to counseling services, community linkages, youth employment support, student and family advocacy, Foster Youth Services, the HOPE Program, and much more. The support services at the DCC are successful due to the collaboration and coordination of multidisciplinary stakeholders at Mt. Diablo High School, DCC staff, administrators, families, community members, and of course the students.
