Welcome to the Helix Wellness Center
The Helix Wellness Center is a place where students can go to feel safe and supported. We have four full-time social workers and social work interns from SDSU School of Social Work. All are available to see students by appointment or walk-in. We are a safe and caring place for you, your friends or family members, because we all hit rough spots in the road and we don't have to walk alone.
The Wellness Center is located in the old administration building on the north end of campus and is open from 8:15 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. every day (closed at 3:15 p.m. on Fridays).
You can reach us by email HWC@helixcharter.net or by phone at 619-644-1940 x 580.
If you know which social worker you'd like to connect with, you can find their information below.
If this is an emergency, please contact the California Youth Crisis Line at 1-800-843-5200.
