More About TimelyCare

What type of issues can I get help with?

TimelyCare counselors can treat a wide range of common conditions – including anxiety, stress, grief, depression, relationship issues and more. After talking with you, the provider will decide on the best course of treatment.

How much does it cost?

There is no cost to students enrolled at Foothill or De Anza College. You will not be asked for credit card information or proof of insurance.

Is there any limit on counseling sessions?

You can have up to 12 scheduled counseling (one-on-one) sessions per year through Timely Care. 

Can I still see a Psychological Services counselor at Foothill?

Yes. You can choose to see a counselor through whichever service you prefer – TimelyCare or Foothill's Psychological Services. We ask that you don’t use both at the same time. It can be confusing for you and the counselors if you are seeing two at the same time.

Will this count against the limit for Psychological Services counseling at Foothill?

No. You can have up to 12 scheduled sessions per year through TimelyCare and up to 10 individual sessions per year with a Foothill Psychological Services counselor. We ask that you don’t use both at the same time. It can be confusing for you and the counselors if you are seeing two at the same time.

Is there service available for international students?

TimelyCare is offered free to all Foothill students, regardless of their legal residency. However, because of licensing rules, the TalkNow and Scheduled Counseling services cannot be provided if you are physically located outside the United States.

Important Note About TimelyCare's Medical Healthcare Services

For Foothill students, TimelyCare ONLY provides psychological mental health & wellness services.

For other medical healthcare services, please contact our Foothill Student Health Services Center.
