Recovering emotionally after a natural disaster

Our hearts go out to all the people affected by Hurricane Harvey. Those affected by the hurricane may be experiencing a variety of emotions. The emotions can include sadness, anxiety, relief, anger, guilt, jealousy, and so much more. It's healthy to feel these feelings, even though it is confusing. Natural disasters take an emotional toll. You are not alone, and the Del Mar College Counseling Center is here to support you. To schedule an appointment, call (361) 698-1586 or email

We also help students grow and develop in ways that allow them to take advantage of the educational opportunities at the college. We are also available to provide consultation to faculty and staff who are concerned about the well-being and academic success of Del Mar College students. All services are free and confidential.

We provide free counseling and consultation to all enrolled DMC students regardless of national origin, race, gender, gender expression, sexual orientation, ethnicity, functional ability, socio-economic status, body size and appearance, age, and religious affiliation.
